Yesterday I had a tooth filled and repaired. If having this done is "as bad as having a tooth pulled," for you, then Dr. Yang is the dentist for you. I was in and out in less than half an hour, and felt no pain whatsoever. As someone who grew up hating the effects of getting my jaw deadened, then you will understand how wonderful it is not having to experience that anymore. He gives me enough to take away all of the discomfort, but leaving with being able to talk and smile with no problems. It's like I never had it. It's so nice to not dread going for dental work.
