Have to admit, I was a bit nervous. I didn't want to be completely out for the procedure, so they suggested they use the "laughing gas" along with the numbing injections. Had one tooth pulled and two implants inserted into my jaw. I was aware of everything that was done, but felt no pain whatsoever. Dr. Swiderski and his staff were wonderful.
