Had to get an infected tooth pulled. Was nervous as heck as have not had any major issues with my teeth. Afraid of the pain and discomfort. I have to say, much, much better experience than I was imagining. Yes, there was some minor discomfort as the tooth was difficult to get out, but next to no pain and now, about 36 hours afterwards, no pain or discomfort whatsoever. Much better experience that I was anticipating. Dr. Ferrera is good at what he does.
