Why Is A Comprehensive "Holistic" Approach To Dental Care Important?

The best way to be free of dental problems is to take a "holistic" approach that not only gets to the root of the problems, but also finds the best solutions and materials to prevent the problems from occurring again. Quick fixes are only a bandage that does not address why the problems occurred in the first place.

What Needs To Be Considered For A Comprehensive "Holistic" Approach?

It is important to know where you have been, where you are now, and an honest assessment about where you want to go and what you are willing to do about your dental health. Once we know this, it becomes easy to recommend the appropriate treatment. The better you know where you want to go, the easier it is for us to help you get there. This is why our mission is "To help patients become healthier."

What Is Dental Health?

We realize that dental health is not a single end point but a spectrum. Where you are now may be different at different times in your life, but it can change. You can always be healthier.

What Are the Major Causes of Dental Problems?

Of the three primary reasons why you might lose your teeth – tooth decay, gum disease, and bite problems – the first two are caused by bacteria that we call dental plaque. There are many ways of controlling plaque, but what works best for you can be determined with the help of your dentist. Bite problems are caused by abnormal physical stress on the teeth. A plan that incorporates plaque and stress control will ensure keeping your teeth for a lifetime.

What Dental Materials Are Considered Safe?

Although all accepted dental materials have been researched and tested to be generally safe, we realize that what might be right for one person may not be right for another. Given the risks, benefits, and alternatives, we feel that a person is able to choose the best materials for themselves.

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.
