My first tooth implant could not have gone any smoother. I was nervous and anticipating a lot of pain afterwards - BUT happy to report, I did not even have to fill the pain prescription that Dr. Faerber gave to me, just in case. I took off work on the day he placed the implant, but it wasn't really necessary. I had no complications and only took Advil for a day or two. It healed perfectly and I am now ready for the next step, getting the crown placed. Dr. Faerber's team was so efficient!

Doctor Faerber did an amazing job with my wisdom teeth removal. His consultation was informative and very clear and the surgery went so smoothly. He and his staff answered all my questions after surgery as well.
