I had 2 multiple teeth extractions after years of delay because of fear of pain and recovery. To my surprise, I was easily sedated for both procedures by IV and didn't feel a thing before or after the procedure. Dr. Wakefield performed the procedure and medications. I took the pain pills regularly until finished and never had any discomfort like most people complain about with multiple wisdom teeth extractions. I appreciate that Dr. Wakefield suggested doing one side at a time because I had extra teeth and while one side healed I had the other side to easily eat with. About a month later I did the other side, again with no post-op pain and fast recovery. On the first procedure the stitches dissolved on their own once healed. On the second, I had extra teeth other than my molars removed, which required one stitch that was removed in 1 follow-up visit. I can't speak highly enough about the nice facility, staff, and treatment at AOS. If I were to need any additional dental surgical treatment, that is the only place I would go. I highly recommend AOS to anyone that needs major dental work or surgery. I had no pain!
