Dr. Kanter extracted 3 separate teeth for me on two separate occasions. The teeth had old root canals. The root canals were originally done 30 years earlier. The extractions were absolutely painfree. Dr. Kanter has a very confident and inspiring bedside manner. Also, pain medication was available on site after the surgical extraction, but it was not necessary. I was put under anestetic for the procedures, so I don't remember the extractions, but I woke with no pain. That's what mattered most to me.
