Braces Pain | Orthodontist in San Mateo

Do you have braces pain?

You don’t need to suffer from braces pain when you choose the correct orthodontist in San Mateo.

I’ve spent my long career in orthodontics searching for the best possible treatments, methodologies, and technologies for my patients. Over the years, I met with experts from all over the field. They always displayed their best cases and the intricacies of their techniques, each doctor confident that their approach was the be-all and end-all for the future of the industry.

Many of their ideas were promising, but I knew that no matter how well a technique worked in someone else’s hands, it ultimately had to work in my hands away from the hyped-up marketing and selective data. I needed approaches that not only worked, but would consistently provide the highest level of care and comfort for my patients with no compromise in terms of results.

At the beginning, I often became frustrated with the way things were done. It seemed that orthodontists were mostly interested in torturing their patients. They’d ask, “Does this hurt?” and if the patient said no, they cranked up the tension. The thinking went that if the treatment didn’t constantly ache, it wasn’t working. It was clear to me that this wasn’t the only way to a positive outcome for patients. My philosophy is to never treat a patient with anything I wouldn’t want for myself.

Fortunately, I’ve had an innate enthusiasm and ceaseless hunger for improvement ever since I was little. As technology improved and I steadily mastered the delicate art of orthodontics, I learned how to avoid the aches and pains associated with getting a straighter smile.

Now patients come in and complain that their teeth aren’t hurting enough from the treatment, suspicious that it may not be working. “Well, that’s my system you have in your mouth,” I tell them. It’s the product of an enormous amount of persistent work and study. Pain just doesn’t enter into the equation.

Orthodontics is a deceptively complicated field, but after more than 25 years helping patients transform their smiles, it’s become as natural to me as breathing. Still, I never stop researching and discovering new ways to continually improve. To me, the future is endlessly beautiful. If I can stay driven, happy, and excited about what I do every day, this outlook will spread throughout my team and to my patients.

After all, I didn’t become an orthodontist just so I could work on people’s teeth. I want to make people happier, healthier, more confident, and successful. I want to create a life worth living not only for myself, but for my patients, my team, and the greater San Mateo community. It may be a lofty goal, but I’ve never been one to shy away from a challenge, including the challenge of significantly reducing braces pain.
