San Francisco smiles can be restored with crowns and affordable dental implants

Affordable dental implants san francisco

Dr. Leo Arellano’s dental implants topped with beautiful crowns offer people in San Francisco and the surrounding areas an affordable way to restore full beauty and function to their smiles.

The advantages of dental implants

  • Preserve natural tooth structure – Conventional bridges require the supporting teeth to be reduced and shaped for the placement of the anchoring crowns. Dental implants are standalone restorations that do not affect other teeth.
  • Balance the chewing forces – Due to their independent support, dental implants reduce the pressure on the remaining oral structure by carrying their own load rather than it being transferred to supporting teeth as is the case with bridgework.
  • Longevity – Studies have found that implants remain stable and functional much longer than other restorations. With proper care, they have been known to last a lifetime in many cases.
  • Preserve jawbone tissue – By stimulating the bone tissue, implants reduce deterioration and bone resorption that result in loss of jawbone width and height. This, in turn, helps preserve the facial contours.

  • Lifelike – Dental implant restorations are strong and stable, allowing them to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
  • Predictable – Dental implants have a record of successful treatment (95-98 percent).
  • Easy care – Caring for a tooth restored with a dental implant is the very same as caring for a natural tooth. Simply brush, floss, and maintain regular dental visits.

Economic considerations make implants affordable

When a single tooth is lost, the two most common treatments are implant-supported crowns and tooth supported bridges. According to the ADA (American Dental Association), a dental bridge lasts 10 years on average. Clinical studies have found that a dental implant can last a lifetime with proper care. When the cost of replacing a dental bridge every 10 years is compared to the “once and done” cost of dental implants, the implant restoration is more cost-effective. Although more expensive initially, dental implants are not only a better choice for treatment, they are more affordable in the long run.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
