Invisalign orthodontic treatments offer an alternative to braces in San Francisco

Braces Orthodontics San Francisco

A great smile is about more than white teeth, fresh breath, and lack of cavities. It’s also about having teeth that are properly aligned. However, many patients believe that the only way to get a straighter smile is with traditional braces. Dr. Leo Arellano of San Francisco offers his patients an alternative with Invisalign orthodontic treatment.

How is Invisalign different from traditional braces?

Invisalign works by using a series of comfortable plastic alignment trays to shift the teeth into proper positions. Instead of traditional metal braces with sharp wires and tiny rubber bands, Invisalign’s trays offer patients discretion during their orthodontic treatment.

We are here to help Call us at 415-881-4343 or Schedule an Appointment today

In addition to delivering a better smile, Invisalign offers other benefits:

  • Comfort: Metal braces are sharp and can cut or scratch the inside of your cheek and lips. Invisalign uses comfortable plastic trays that can be worn while the patient works, sleeps, exercises, talks, and participates in nearly all their day to day activities.
  • Removability: While the alignment trays are easy to wear they can be removed for eating. Many patients using traditional braces are disappointed to learn that they can’t eat their favorite foods for several years. Foods that are sticky can pull at the wires and brackets, while hard and crunchy foods could snap the bracket right off. With Invisalign, patients simply remove the trays, eat their favorite foods, and then put them back in. Furthermore, the trays can be removed while the patient brushes and flosses, leading to improved oral health.
  • Convenience: With traditional braces, patients must visit the orthodontist frequently for a checkup and tightening. However, with Invisalign, patients will still need to check in with their dentist throughout the course of treatment to make sure that the treatment is working, but there are fewer and faster appointments, and less time away from personal and professional responsibilities.

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.
