Proper oral hygiene and consistent dental checkups are a great way to lessen the risk of many dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. However, even with the best at-home and in-office oral care, issues can come up. Dr. Leo Arellano helps patients in San Francisco, CA, address needs such as:

  • Sensitive Teeth: Feeling pain when drinking or eating something hot or cold can make patients uncomfortable and can take the joy out of it. Unfortunately, tooth sensitivity affects many people. Dr. Arellano can examine their mouths to determine the cause of the sensitivity and recommend treatment or a fluoride regimen to stop the sensitivity.

  • Toothaches: Pain in the tooth can range from annoying to intense. However, any pain should be addressed, as it is often a sign of an ongoing problem. While over the counter pain relievers can give patients temporary relief, it’s best to have Dr. Arellano examine the tooth and fix the problem.

  • Gum disease: Gum disease occurs when bacteria grow beneath the gum line and cause infection. As the infection grows symptoms of gum disease can range from swollen and bleeding gums to a receding gum line or loose teeth. Addressing gum disease early is key to reversing it. If you see a little “pink in the sink” when you brush your teeth, call the office of Dr. Arellano to schedule an appointment.

  • Tooth decay: Bacteria on the teeth can lead to a breakdown of the tooth enamel, known as a cavity. Many people understand that cavities are caused by eating sugary foods or not brushing away food particles. Unfortunately, there are areas of the teeth that are impossible to reach with at-home brushing. This is often where cavities begin. Treating a cavity quickly is important to minimizing damage.

  • Broken or Missing Teeth: Teeth can be lost or broken for many reasons, including decay or trauma. However, when it happens, it can have a serious impact on a person’s health, confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Arellano can fix a broken or missing tooth with a variety of treatments including crowns, bridges, implants, or dentures.

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.
