Yesterday I met Dr. Pedroletti for the first time to evaluate my tongue, which had turned red and uncomfortably tingly after a "crown-lengthening" procedure in mid-December. He is fantastic! -- confident, calm, knowledgable, thorough, patient, kind, friendly, and reassuring. I knew immediately I was in good hands.
I had burned my tongue in July, and one side turned quite red. It seemed to be healing, though slowly, but after the procedure it was bright red again and looked like it had tiny blisters. The tingling was so uncomfortable, and my lips were also tingling. I was concerned if I might have oral cancer. My dentist thought it was post surgery stress, but he recommended I see Dr. Pedroletti for an evaluation.
Sure enough, Dr. Pedroletti confirmed that it was stress related from the procedure, that it was not concerning, I did not have cancer, and it was healing. He took the time to explain everything to me that I needed to know to reassure me. Best dentist ever!
