This is the first time Dr. Tirado worked extensively on my mouth. She filled a complicated filling in a rear molar. The work required plenty of pressure in my mouth, but she numbed me very well in one shot, and I never experienced any pain. My jaw was sore for a few days after the filling, but again, no real pain. The filling fits well in my mouth, and I am very happy with the work. I've been a patient of this office for 44 years, and travel 70 miles one way to get there, four times a year for cleaning. It's worth every effort on my part.
