Fast results for minor misalignment in San Francisco CA – Invisalign Express

San Francisco CA Invisalign

Invisalign is a tooth straightening system that uses a series of custom made, clear, BPA-free, thermoplastic aligners that look like teeth whitening trays. The trays are exchanged for a new set every two weeks, as tooth movement progresses. They are virtually invisible when worn; making them a popular choice for adults in San Francisco CA. Invisalign has straightened over 1.7 million smiles for delighted patients.

The aligners are removable for effective oral hygiene, as well as for eating and when drinking hot or staining beverages such hot coffee or red wine. However, they must be worn at least 20 to 22 hours a day for the treatment to stay on schedule. The aligners are smooth and comfortable, unlike the irritating wires and brackets of traditional orthodontics. Fewer dental visits are required than with metal braces, and the time in the dentist’s chair is shorter because it is usually just a quick check with no adjustments to be made.

Invisalign moves the teeth to the appropriate positions with gentle controlled force. With each set of trays, only select teeth are moved, making the treatment very comfortable. The average treatment time for standard Invisalign is 12 months, depending on the severity of the misalignment. However, for those who need minor tooth adjustment, Invisalign has developed an accelerated option called Invisalign Express. This system is great for mild spacing or crowding issues, or those who are relapsing from previous orthodontic treatment.

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.
