Had a wisdom tooth removed “late in life” after more than a year of unexplained facial and jaw pain. Standard Xrays did not reveal anything, so I was referred to Dr. Achong for evaluation. After just one (high-tech!) Xray, the problem was discovered immediately and he recommended removal with sedation. BEST ADVICE EVER. They scheduled me a couple of days later (at my convenience!), then provided exquisite service from the moment I stepped in the door. Whisked to the back, not left in the waiting area to stew and worry….
Extremely helpful staff from the front desk to the insurance stop to the treatment rooms and right to my car. Had I known it would be this little discomfort, and so easy on the wallet, I would not have spent on minute worrying. Nor should you. If you have mouth pain, go see Dr. Achong. He is a pleasant guy who obviously knows his business. His staff is top notch, and his equipment state of the art. As a “major chicken” when it comes to needles and “surgery” of any sort, this entire process was a most comfortable one indeed–much less pain than I thought possible for “surgery.”
I am happy to report that, one week post-extraction, I was given the “all clear” to return to normal eating, brushing, “anything I want!” Interestingly, the pain that radiated from my wisdom tooth below the left eye (#17 is its official name) forward five teeth, with aching jaw problems for over a year that neither Ibuprofen nor Acetaminophen could control, was completely gone within days. I am already pain free. Only took the post-surg meds two days before the pain had subsided. Not a moment’s trouble at the incision site. Not even discomfort to eat.
