About Us

Orthodontics for a Brighter Future.

Your elegantly adjusted teeth will have the power to drastically change your future. We strive to offer treatments that lead to a new, beautiful smile for our patients. Healthy teeth have a deep connection with your general health, and your smile is the key to a strong first impression when you meet someone new. Your mouth is the organ which controls what you put into your body when you eat, but also your main tool for communicating with the outside world. E-Smile’s orthodontic treatments increase the lifespan of your teeth and have the power to positively alter your future.

Non-extraction, almost invisible, pain-free, short treatment times. At E-Smile, everything is possible.

Molar Oriented Orthodontics (MOO) is the pride of E-Smile’s non-extraction orthodontic treatments. Aligners are created using the dedicated Invisalign® oral scanner, iTero Element, which delivers world-class accuracy and allows for nearly invisible treatment. Light Accerelated Orthodontics with OrtrhoPulse® reduces pain dramatically and shortens treatment time. These technologies provide you with a safe, comfortable, reliable orthodontic experience.

Our Non-extraction MOO philosophy for restoring molars

Molars are the keystone for tooth alignment. In most cases of poor tooth alignment, the molars are tilted toward the front or the interior of the mouth. By restoring the position of the molars while maintaining oral muscle balance, a broad, circular, stable tooth alignment can be achieved, eliminating the need to extract premolars in many cases.

Minimum visibility.
Cutting-edge treatment based on ever-evolving aligners.

Our aligners are nearly invisible, so need to worry about meals or photographs. Patients can brush and floss as normal. Precise scanning and digital preparation using our iTero technology. The Invisalign® procedure, performed by a dedicated orthodontic specialist, allows for a treatment experience that is totally different than existing orthodontic treatments.

Fast, painless treatment through the combination of Invisalign and OrthoPulse technologies.

With Invisalign all tooth movements are less than 0.25 mm per aligner.
You will never experience the kind of pain from wire-based treatments.
And by combining the aligner treatment with OrthoPulse®’s intraoral near-infrared photobiomodulation, treatment can completed up to four times faster than conventional Invisalign treatment, with far less pain. This is the world’s most advanced light-accelerated orthodontic aligner treatment, announced in Tokyo, Germany, France and the USA.

Tradition evolves

1965

– The first orthodontic exclusive clinic in Kinki area Japan –
Dr. Hirohide Arimoto’s father, Takayuki Arimoto opened the “Wakayama Orthodontic Research Institute” as orthodontic exclusive clinic. It was the first orthodontic exclusive clinic in Kinki area Japan. At that time, it was an era that is rarely acknowleged what is orthodontic treatment in Japan.
He began to use edgewise multi-bracket system which was just introducing Japan at that time. Banding every tooth and premolar extraction technique was the latest technique at that time.

1994

– Challenge of Nonextraction treatment with MOO –
After Dr. Hirohide Arimoto becoming an orthodontist, he begin to work with Takayuki at his office. And they start to focus on nonextraction treatment. It was big change as Takayuki has been treated mostly with extraction.
Dr. Hirohide Arimoto learned the nonextraction technique called CAD technique from Dr. Raphael Greenfield. He was really impressed when he took a lecture of Dr. Greenfield, and he try to visit his office in Florida to observe his technique in 1995 when he just graduate PhD degree. Then he decide to master that as he realize that CAD technique is really different than other extraction technique. He began to help Dr. Greenfield’s course as an assistant and became an instructor. He established study club of the Japanese Academy of Nonextraction Orthodontics. The Academy has awarded best table clinic at the annual meeting of American Association of Orthodontist (AAO) in 2002. And he made a lecture at AAO with his good friend Dr. John KAKU.

2001

– Opening E-Smile Orthodonitc Office –
He graduate from PhD degree in 1995. He works as an assistant at the Osaka Dental College orthodontics course. However, since he visited the practitioner ‘s office in America, and watched American orthodontic style at the AAO, he wants doing orthodontic treatment in an atmosphere where more patients can enjoy it, then he opened E-Smile Orthodontic Office in Daido, Tennoji-ku, Osaka. The first office was on the 9th floor of the building, and it was very small which has only 3 dental chairs. Christmas and Halloween events are very common in Japan now, but from that time we wore various costumes during the treatment, and patients enjoyed it. His father’s orthodontic office is taken over by Dr. Shiori who is his sister now.

2005

– MOO Seminer in abroad –
Since Dr. Greenfield ceased to come to Japan, CAD seminars were regularly held in Tokyo, but since 2005, the seminars held overseas as well. In 2005, he started a course at Italian Polly Second College, and did a course for three days in India and Korea. Then, while instructing many doctors, he organized the essential part of the CAD technique, and the MOO technique was established.

2007

– Sustainable Orthodontics –
After that, he also learned the method of skeleton correction using anchor plate from Professor Deklaque from Belgium, and the method of bone formation called PAOO using periodontal technology from Periodontal Dr. Wilco from USA. In any case, he learned directly from the original developer and introduced them in Japan as soon as possible. These techniques lead to “Anti-Aging Orthodontic Therapy” spoken in Italy in 2007 and “Sustainable Orthodontic Treatment” which he gave a special lecture at the Kyushu Orthodontic Society in 2013. In addition, Osaka office moved to the present location in 2007.

2013

– MOO with Invisalign –
What is currently in evolution is the latest invisalign treatment. Invisalign has started in the United States since 1999. It has been started in Japan since 2007. E-Smile was licensed at the time of introducing Japan.
However, we thought that it was insufficient to do complicated treatment still in the system at that time, so we did not introduce it. However, due to the evolution of 3D related computer technology and the evolution of material of Aligner in recent years, it has become possible to adapt in most cases. However, due to the evolution of 3D related computer technology and the evolution of material of the aligner in recent years, it has become possible to adapt in most cases. In 2014, iTero scanner was finally introduced in Japan, making it possible to produce precise aligners. We introduced the first iTero scanner in western Japan in September 2014. In earnest, we have started Invisalign treatment, and now we treat almost all cases with Invisalign.

2015

– Light Accelerated Orthodontics –
Since 2015, he worked on accelerated orthodontic treatment using photo biomodulation. We have the world’s largest achievements in light accelerated orthodontics using OrthoPulse, and Dr. Arimoto is also a member of Biolux Research’s Clinical Advisory Board. He gave a lecture about it at the seminar in Hong Kong and Taiwan, at the booth of AAO, Japan Academy of Aligner Orthodontics, including the German Aligner Orthodontics Association which is the world’s most historical aligner orthodontics conference.

2016

– E-Smile International Orthodontics –
We have renamed E-Smile International Orthodontics based on the fact that the number of patients from overseas has increased and the relocation of the Ashiya office. The size of the Ashiya office is about the same as Osaka. We have renewed our office design to make it more suitable for invisaline treatment, so that patients can take orthodontic treatment more comfortably. We will continue pursuing secure and comfortable orthodontic treatment while evolving tradition.
