San Francisco patients ask, “Is Invisalign better than braces?”

Invisalign Better Than Braces San Francisco

A great smile is important for plenty of reasons. Not only does it give many individuals a great boost of confidence, it can also help to improve personal and professional relationships. Individuals who have teeth that are misaligned often find themselves being critical of their own smile and appearance.

Dr. Leo Arellano, a trusted dentist in San Francisco, has been helping his patients improve their smiles for many years. Dr. Arellano recognizes that while many patients want to make changes because of their appearance, those changes can also improve the health of the mouth as well. Many adult patients do not want to undergo traditional orthodontics because they don’t want noticeable brackets and wires for several years.

To help patients achieve the smile they want, Dr. Arellano offers Invisalign treatment system. Invisalign offers patients a better smile without undergoing traditional orthodontic treatment. The system works by using a set of clear alignment trays that gently shift the teeth into proper position. The patient simply wears an alignment tray for a predetermined amount of time, typically two weeks, then moves onto the next tray in the series. This system also helps patients lessen the amount of time they spend in a dental chair as the appointments to have the wires tightened are eliminated.

In addition to delivering great results, there are other great benefits to Invisalign. First, the trays can be removed when the patient eats, allowing individuals to keep eating their favorite foods. While the patient will need to wear the trays for as many hours as possible, they can also be removed for important meetings or social events. This gives many patients the confidence to invest the time and budget into the treatment system.

Caring for the teeth while undergoing treatment is simple and requires no extra time or equipment. Patients simply remove the trays to brush and floss their teeth and thoroughly clean the trays and then place them back in the mouth. Most dentists advise patient to wear the trays for 22-23 hours each day.

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.
