l am so glad to hear that your dental proceedure is going well. l, too, had a similar dental proceedure done about 10 years ago. l had 17 teeth removed through outpatient surgery and was left with only 15 of my front teeth. l had absolutely no problems the following day and when the dentist called to see if l was in pain l said no, it's as if nothing happened the previous day! He was so shocked that l wasn't in pain! l did have some slight phantom pains and little fragments of teeth but nothing major.
All the best!
