Extractions are always a last resort in Dr. Mele’s philosophy. He carefully considered all other options before recommending an extraction. When an extraction service is performed, Dr. Mele explains the procedure and the possible side effects that may occur. The use of local anesthetic and nitrous oxide analgesia is discussed. Comfort is the utmost priority during the procedure. Color therapy glasses and/or relaxing flower homeopathics can also be used to relieve anxiety.
Dr. Mele is a certified ActaLine® practitioner. He uses the patented ActaLine® Therapy before, during and after the procedure to reduce anxiety. In addition, ActaLine® Therapy reduces post surgical swelling, bruising, and discomfort.
