  • Having worked in the medical field for over 35 years, I've had many experiences with staff and doctors, both good and bad. I can tell you first hand that the entire staff and Dr. Berry were wonderful during my surgery at their Suffolk office. Every one of them was professional with a personal touch of care for individual thrown in! Thank you all so much, I would refer anyone needing your services to contact you! For the very best in oral surgery and other services, don't hesitate to contact Goodove.

    They removed 3 of my wisdom teeth today, I got the gas option and it was well worth it. I live in Franklin and I drove all the way to the Virginia Beach location because of the reviews. I have HORRIBLE anxiety and I freaked out while he was numbing me and they helped calm me down and talked to me the whole time. They are very caring the nurse & the doctor! Im surprised because the doctors usually don’t care it’s always the nurses but this surgeon was AWESOME a huge thanks to y’all. I would recommend y’all to anyone! God bless!

    Procedure was very smooth. The sugeon came in, numbed me up, and pulled my tooth out. It was so smooth I hadn't even realized that he had finished. The whole process maybe took 15 minutes. His assistant was the cherry on top. She explained everything to me and was clear on describing my issue as well as steps to take on after care. I will recommend this team for anyone.

  • Staff very professional and caring. My 11yo grandaughter had to have a tooth pulled. Very impressed with the fact that they called later in the day to check on her.
    P.S. My only concern was the fact I didn't know until they were taking her back that I couldn't go with her. She has anxiety disorder. I am a retired Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and would not have been bothered to be with her during the procedure. Her regular dentist always let's me be in the room for any procedures.They did promise if she had any issues they would come get me. The front desk receptionist even went back during the procedure to check on her so I really appreciated that. Only other thing is the online new patient form. It is not at all set up for a child as a patient.

    My 12 year old had 2 teeth extracted for braces. I asked him three days after the appointment if he needed any Tylenol. He said "I never needed any, it never hurt." Pain-free experience. Staff were great, efficient and polite. Doctor was perfect, succinct, professional, not condescending at all. Refreshing dental experience. Highly recommend this group.

    My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Goodove and from the 1st time we came into the office until his actual extraction appointment they we a true pleasure. They were funny and made you feel very comfortable. They did a great job with my son and were very informative from day one. They scheduled his appointment very quickly which I really appreciated cause I wanted the teeth out before school started. They truly made us feel very comfortable and that means a lot when it comes to caring for my son. True customer service.

  • Scott and Kelley were great. They explained everything that was going to happen. Gave me the right amount of Novocain so that I wouldn't feel any pain, but not so much so that my fell onto the floor. I don't like that either. His office has also helped me navigate the loss of my job and using Cobra to retain my insurance, and the coordination of my benefits. The only drawback is that there isn't handicapped parking near the door to his office.

    Dr. Zagursky and Jillian were absolutely wonderful! I felt so cared for during my implant procedure. Dr. Zagursky’s impeccable bedside manner is by far one of the best experiences I’ve had in both the medical and dental fields in Hampton Roads. Both Jillian and Dr. Zagusrky called me a few hours later to check up on my healing. I cannot recommend this practice highly enough and while I do not wish to need another implant in the future, this is where I would return. Thank you all!

    I really appreciate this oral surgeon office. I had an impacted wisdom tooth removed by laughing gas. Was extremely nervous, I mean who wouldn’t be, but the procedure was super smooth. I think I was worried for nothing. Dr. Z was amazing. My wisdom was removed in as little as 15-20 minutes. If necessary, I will be coming back, I will not look any further.

    Prayerfully my healing process goes even smoother! Would totally recommend.

    UPDATE: It’s been three days and I was worried when the anesthesia wore off I would experience excruciating pain, but I haven’t had any pain or soreness at all. The side of my face, where the tooth was extracted did swell up pretty huge (golfball size) , which was completely expected, but the swelling is now going down. I personally haven’t needed the pain medicine that were prescribed to me, which is amazing because I really do not enjoy taking pills of any sort unless I seriously have to. Dr. Z is amazing I really cannot stress that enough. Definitely one of the best. Pay attention to the reviews, they are not leading you astray.

  • My daughter had surgery and that was her first time. She was nervous and the sad thing about it nobody could go back there with her due to the coronavirus and she only twelve years old. But the nurse that was back there with her was very amazing. She assure me that she was going to be right there beside her and make sure she would be alright and she did just that. The nurse made my daughter feel safe and comfortable she talk to her and everything. The staff called me and let me know what was going on and to let me know that my daughter was doing good. And the best thing about it they didn't take long. I will recommend family and friends to this dentist office.

    Dr. Goodove and his staff were once again great from start to finish. My daughter had her wisdom teeth removed and everything went smoothly. This is my second daughter to have this procedure here and I will definitely be bringing my youngest here as well. Would definitely highly recommend Dr. Goodove Oral Surgery.

  • Kind of a hassle with all the COVID 19 precautions, but I'm glad they try so hard to keep everyone safe. They do a great job easing the "white knuckle flight" that many of us experience in a dental chair. Procedure and options discussed at length at initial visit, and they actually listen to you as the patient. Procedure was painless. Post operative instructions were thorough. Don't know how it could be any better (other than not needing the service to begin with).

  • Another wonderful surgery!! Two extractions, and my mouth feels 10 times better. It’s sore obviously, but not like what I was dealing with while they were in. I’ll take this pain over that pain any day of the week! Dr. Goodove and his staff are perfect!! I’m always nervous when it comes to anything to do with my teeth, but I trust them to no end! I would never go anywhere else! You want a surgeon that knows what he’s doing, come here! You want friendly and professional staff that embody a great surgeon, look no further, they have it all!! I could not be more happy to have found such a wonderful surgeon and affordable! Absolutely incredible people here!

    Thank you so much for helping me! See you next time!

    Both of my appointments were absolutely organized and on time. The entire staff was professional and kind. My actual surgery was amazing, I was given step by step knowledge of what was happening and Dr Goodove was wonderful. He was gentle, kept me informed of what was happening with each step. I was very nervous and anxious but Jackie and Dr Goodove made me feel so comfortable. I loved the information package given to me for instructions and food suggestions for my post op care. Something I have referred back to several times. I had to drive one hour and forty five minutes but it was absolutely worth it.

They walked me through the procedure, gave me step by step of everything they would do and made me feel so comfortable with putting my baby in their hands. Even after surgery they followed up with a phone call and made sure everything was good with us. They were fantastic and I highly recommend them.

    My visit on June 9, 2020 was a very pleasant one. I was in good care with Dr Zagursky and Meaghan. I went in for an extraction and bone grafting for a future implant. My questions were all answered and I appreciated the follow up call from Meaghan after my procedure. I feel confident that the rest of my procedures will go just as well.

Dr. Goodove can and met me and explained the procedure to me, I really appreciate that since this wasn’t the Dr. I seen on my initial visit. The procedure took last then a hour, my recovery is going well minimum pain and swelling. I highly recommend this practice five stars doesn’t do them justice.

    My husband was experiencing severe pain and recently required emergency surgery to extract the remainder of a broken tooth. Dr. Green was able to promptly diagnose the issue and quickly work my husband in for an appointment. We were very pleased with the prompt service, professionalism, and care shown by Dr. Green and the staff while at the Chesapeake office.

    I'm a bit nervous about dental work. I came for an evaluation and it turned out that I needed a broken molar removed. The procedure was quick and aside from a slight bit of pressure, I never felt a thing! Since I have a rather crowded mouth, I elected not to replace the tooth, but I am thrilled that it has been prepared in a way that I can have an implant later if I change my mind. I will definitely go back to Dr. Goodove if I ever need an oral surgeon again. What a great experience!

    The front desk staff were beyond nice and accommodating, and Delanie and Dr. Goodove were fantastic. They worked efficiently and very effectively and the communication was flawless. No pain and I just had this done today! Affordable and wonderful!

    My 9 year old son has diagnosed anxiety. The way Dr. Green spoke to him directly and made him feel at ease prepared him for his procedure and took away his fear. The day of the surgery My son asked for Dr, Green, he had no fits, no tears, few nerves. I really appreciate how the nurse as well as the doctor followed up with me personally to make sure he was recovering well. I would recommend this office.

Bone Grafting

 

Major & Minor Bone Grafting

 

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants. In these situations, most patients are not candidates for placement of dental implants.

 

Today, we have the ability to grow bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance.

 

Major Bone Grafting

 

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw. In addition, special membranes may be utilized that dissolve under the gum and protect the bone graft and encourage bone regeneration. This is called guided bone regeneration or guided tissue regeneration.

 

Major bone grafts are typically performed to repair defects of the jaws. These defects may arise as a result of traumatic injuries, tumor surgery, or congenital defects. Large defects are repaired using the patients own bone. This bone is harvested from a number of different sites depending on the size of the defect. The skull (cranium), hip (iliac crest), and lateral knee (tibia), are common donor sites. These procedures are routinely performed in an operating room and require a hospital stay.

 

Sinus Lift Procedure

 

The maxillary sinuses are behind your cheeks and on top of the upper teeth. Sinuses are like empty rooms that have nothing in them. Some of the roots of the natural upper teeth extend up into the maxillary sinuses. When these upper teeth are removed, there is often just a thin wall of bone separating the maxillary sinus and the mouth. Dental implants need bone to hold them in place. When the sinus wall is very thin, it is impossible to place dental implants in this bone.

 

There is a solution and its called a sinus graft or sinus lift graft. The dental implant surgeon enters the sinus from where the upper teeth used to be. The sinus membrane is then lifted upward and donor bone is inserted into the floor of the sinus. Keep in mind that the floor of the sinus is the roof of the upper jaw. After several months of healing, the bone becomes part of the patients jaw and dental implants can be inserted and stabilized in this new sinus bone.

 

The sinus graft makes it possible for many patients to have dental implants when years ago there was no other option other than wearing loose dentures.

 

If enough bone between the upper jaw ridge and the bottom of the sinus is available to stabilize the implant well, sinus augmentations and implant placement can sometimes be performed as a single procedure. If not enough bone is available, the sinus augmentation will have to be performed first, then the graft will have to mature for several months, depending upon the type of graft material used. Once the graft has matured, the implants can be placed.

 

Ridge Expansion

 

In severe cases, the ridge has been reabsorbed and a bone graft is placed to increase ridge height and/or width. This is a technique used to restore the lost bone dimension when the jaw ridge gets too thin to place conventional implants. In this procedure, the bony ridge of the jaw is literally expanded by mechanical means. Bone graft material can be placed and matured for a few months before placing the implant.

 

Nerve Repositioning

 

The inferior alveolar nerve, which gives feeling to the lower lip and chin, may need to be moved in order to make room for placement of dental implants in the lower jaw. This procedure is limited to the lower jaw and indicated when teeth are missing in the area of the two back molars and/or and second premolar, with the above-mentioned secondary condition. Since this procedure is considered a very aggressive approach (there is almost always some postoperative numbness of the lower lip and jaw area, which dissipates only very slowly, if ever), usually other, less aggressive options are considered first (placement of blade implants, etc.).

 

Typically, an outer section of the cheek side of the lower jawbone is removed in order to expose the nerve and vessel canal. Then we isolate the nerve and vessel bundle in that area and slightly pull it out to the side. At the same time, we will place the implants. Then the bundle is released and placed back over the implants. The surgical access is refilled with bone graft material of the surgeons choice and the area is closed.

 

These procedures may be performed separately or together, depending upon the individual’s condition. As stated earlier, there are several areas of the body that are suitable for attaining bone grafts. In the maxillofacial region, bone grafts can be taken from inside the mouth, in the area of the chin or third molar region, or in the upper jaw behind the last tooth. In more extensive situations, a greater quantity of bone can be attained from the hip or the outer aspect of the tibia at the knee. When we use the patients own bone for repairs, we generally get the best results.

 

In many cases, we can use allograft material to implement bone grafting for dental implants. This bone is prepared from cadavers and used to promote the patients own bone to grow into the repair site. It is quite effective and very safe. Synthetic materials can also be used to stimulate bone formation. We even use factors from your own blood to accelerate and promote bone formation in graft areas.

 

These surgeries are performed in the out-office surgical suite under IV sedation or general anesthesia. After discharge, bed rest is recommended for one day and limited physical activity for one week.
