Today, I had my tooth pulled by the Honorable Dr. Angel Velazquez. If you have reservations about the pain or the procedure as a whole. Hopefully this review will give you some comfort. Jokingly I asked Dr. AV, "So tell me am I your fifth tooth ever pulled!?!" He laughed an informed me when he was a resident at Jackson Memorial, he would pull up to 50 teeth a day. Honestly this gave me a lot of comfort...
He also sat with me to talk about the procedure and what to expect before and gave full instructions in writing after on the care. The best part was before he started, he said "Now James do you have any more questions?" In other words he is calm, informative and made me relaxed before he started his work.
The anesthesia took effect immediately, I had no numbness in my jaw or tongue. I felt no pain what-so-ever before during or after the procedure. Actually after the extraction I began to sing Ave Maria as my celebration of no pain during this process.
In closing, if you have any major concerns about this process.. Dr. Velazquez is really an excellent doctor. Hopefully my post may help with those concerns. Sincerely, JamesT
