Regular visits to the dentist is the key to a healthy mouth

Many people think about visiting the dentist only when they have a problem with their teeth, mouth, or gums. However, regular dental visits, along with proper oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing are the key to keeping a mouth healthy and avoiding potential problems. Dentists are trained and experienced in treating a wide variety of oral health issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, tooth loss, and more. Dr. Leo Arellano and his team are dedicated to providing expert dental care to patients in the 94118 area.

In this practice, Dr. Arellano and his team know that the best way to treat dental problems is to keep them from occurring. Patients who keep up with twice a year checkups are given valuable information and education about at-home oral health care. Additionally, the dental team examines the mouth to ensure that the patient’s at-home care is effective. If plaque or tartar is found on the teeth, it is removed during the professional cleaning portion of the visit. This is important because there are certain areas of the teeth that simply cannot be reached at home.

Also during your preventative checkups, Dr. Arellano will examine the mouth to check for any potential problems. Many oral health issues – such as cavities and gum disease – are easier to treat the sooner they are caught. If Dr. Arellano finds an issue, he will work with you to ensure it is treated. Patients’ concerns and opinions are always considered before a treatment plan is undertaken. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry; instead, patients are treated as individuals.

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.
