Braceless braces from your Invisalign dentist in San Francisco

Invisalign Dentist San Francisco

Many people want straighter teeth for more attractive smiles, but will not consider traditional braces because of the effects they would have on their image and lifestyle. In today’s appearance conscious society, image can have a dramatic effect on an individual’s success. For professionals in the San Francisco Bay area, traditional braces are simply not an option. Metal bracket and wire orthodontics are effective, but unesthetic, and frequently associated with adolescence. Many individuals are not willing to sacrifice their appearance to have orthodontic correction to their teeth.

Dr. Leo Arellano understands these feelings and offers Invisalign, a discreet method to straighten teeth, to people in San Francisco living in the Pacific Heights, Laurel Heights, and Richmond districts, and the surrounding areas. Invisalign is an esthetic, effective alternative that can correct most cases of crowding, rotation, wide spacing, overbite, underbite, and crossbite. There are alternative orthodontic systems available, but they don’t offer the superior level of convenience, comfort, and confidence that Invisalign does.

It corrects malocclusion with a series of clear, BPA free, nearly invisible thermoplastic aligners that are worn over the teeth. The aligners gently move the teeth into their ideal alignment through the appropriate placement of controlled force. The timing of the movement contributes to the comfort of the treatment, as only a few specific teeth are moved during each phase of the process. Patients can see digitized images of the way their smile will look at each stage of the process before treatment begins.

The various orthodontic treatments available create the same results, straight teeth and a more attractive smile. However, the advantages of treatment with Invisalign are obvious when compared to other options.

Malocclusion can negatively impact a patient’s oral health as well as appearance. If the bite is affected, jaw pain and excessive tooth wear can result in the need for additional treatment. Additionally, misaligned teeth can be difficult to clean thoroughly, increasing the risk of developing periodontal disease and tooth decay. People no longer have to choose between a flawed smile with an increased risk to their oral health or the unsightly appearance of metal braces. Invisalign offers an innovative patient-friendly solution.

Dr. Arellano wants everyone to be able to enjoy the benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile, so he offers complimentary 15-minute consultations. Call 415-881-4343 for details.

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.
