I had just joined Anjie's list so I checked out the reviews and seemed comfortable with going there. I had an appointment the next morning. An Xray was taken and Dr. Weston reviewed with me what could be causing the inflammation. He mentioned that if the tooth was fractured, it would have to be extracted. That scared me. He did not go into as much detail as I would have liked. I was very anxious. An appointment was set to have the apicoectomy, a procedure whereby he makes and incision into the gum above the affected tooth and cuts the root tips of two of the three roots and cleans out any infection. Then the incision is sutured. He does this very fine surgery by viewing through a microscope. It is a “closed mouth procedure” while clamping on a wad of gauze. The detail of the procedure itself is what I wished had been described to me at the gitgo. I cancelled the first appointment because the antibiotic settled everything, for a while. But a week later I was back to have the procedure done. It took a little over an hour. I was very pleased how well Dr. Weston and his two dental assistants worked together. I was asked many times during the procedure if I was and quot;okayand quot;. I wished that he could have said at different times during the procedure just what he was doing, i.e. cutting the root tips, suturing...but that is my own curiosity, maybe not for everyone. Of course my mouth was very well numbed!!!! I went back four days later to have the sutures removed. Everything went well and I would definitely recommend him for this procedure. I was very concerned with paying for it as I do not have dental insurance. The office staff told me about an available credit plan which I did get and was given 12 months at zero interest. That was a very big motivator!
