It is never too late to improve the health of Daly City smiles with Invisalign

Invisalign Daly City

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for adolescents anymore; an increasing number of adults are straightening their teeth without taking on a mouth full of metal. With longer life expectancies than past generations, and an ever-increasing pressure to looks one’s best, many adults are seeking the health and aesthetic benefits of straighter teeth and a better bite.

Patient friendly Invisalign

The Invisalign system is the high-tech, discreet way to straighten teeth. A series of transparent, BPA-free, plastic aligner trays gently move teeth into place. The trays are essentially invisible when worn, and can be removed when necessary, so they have a minimal impact on patients’ lifestyles. Fewer office visits and shorter appointments during treatment is a timesaving advantage over traditional treatment.

Although most adults are seeking the aesthetic benefits of straightening their teeth, improved alignment provides a number of health and psychosocial benefits as well:

Improved oral health and resistance to periodontal disease

Studies show that malocclusion (misaligned teeth) reduce the potential for effective oral hygiene and natural cleansing by saliva. Thereby, malocclusion can contribute to the buildup of plaque, increasing the risk of periodontal (gum) disease and dental decay. Proper alignment helps the gum tissue fit around the teeth securely and makes it easier for patients to brush and floss effectively, which promotes healthy teeth and gums.

Improved function

Bite refers to the way the upper and lower teeth fit together; they must mesh properly for optimal function. A bad bite can make biting, chewing, and speaking difficult, cause unnecessary wear on the teeth, and has the potential to cause jaw discomfort. Invisalign aligners can correct crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite. Treatment can restore functionality, comfort, and protect the teeth from excessive wear.
Improved dental and facial aesthetics

Numerous studies have shown that misalignment can be a social and professional handicap. Social reaction to the appearance of the teeth can have a significant psychosocial impact, affecting the way others treat an individual and the way that person feels about him or herself. Invisalign treatment can straighten the teeth and correct the bite thereby transforming the entire face and smile.

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.
