I had implant surgery performed. This is the fourth one I have had. Dr. Herrera kept me well informed of the procedure as it was being undertaken. He explained that this was a new procedure for him, for which he had recently taken the training. The procedure has potential for a great deal of pain but I was able to overcome the after effects with just one Vicodin before bed, The anti inflammatory medicine prescribed was enough to take care of the rest of the after effects. The dental and office assistants were all very helpful before, during and after the procedure.
