  • Because of Covid19, office procedures are a little different. It's obvious they are committed to ensuring everyone feels safe. They have rearranged their waiting room, limited the number of patients allowed in the room and masks are required. There is a short medical form to complete and they are checking patient temperatures. Dr. Zagursky removed a wisdom tooth for me and the procedure was quick and almost pain-free. There was some discomfort from the local anesthetic, but it was minimal. Throughout the procedure Dr. Zagursky showed concern for my comfort. The hygienist explained pre and post surgery procedures and made sure I understood what was being done and what I could expect post op. I am very satisfied with the precautions they are taking during this Covid19 outbreak and my treatment as a patient by all involved was excellent. I would recommend this office to friends and family.

    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.

    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.

    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).

  • Total Pros! I had an emergency during the quarantine and Dr Goodove was able to see me. They had me in and out quickly while making me feel safe with their strict adherence to COVID hygiene protocols. 24 hours later my mouth is healing well and I have no pain. Highly recommend Dr Goodove and his top notch staff!

    Absolutely wonderful experience; for wisdom teeth removal. Very thoughtful staff. Loved that I never had to deal with insurance claims, they handled it all. My daughter's surgery took place in a hospital due to a medication she is on and the doctor wanting to be extra safe; I really appreciated that. Once again, their office staff handled all the details which was amazing. I would highly recommend Dr.Goodove and his associates to my friends.

  • 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.

    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.

    My son had his wisdom teeth pulled by Dr. Goodove and we drove in from Richmond to see him! Everyone at the office was super friendly and professional. Procedure was quick also - we were in and out in less than an hour, and we heard from the office several times the following week to check on him.

    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!

    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.

    Caring & friendly staff starting at the front desk and continuing with every employee of Dr. Peter Zakursky. I saw an oral surgeon for an issue that I was having (along with a lot of pain) on Taylor Road and that doc(won’t mention his name at 4053 Taylor Rd) said he could schedule me for 6 weeks later to fix it and said my pain shouldn’t be that bad. I then called Dr. Zakursky at Goodove Oral Surgery and told them what was going on and that I was in a lot of pain. They scheduled me for a consultation the next morning and once I got in there, Dr. Zakursky and staff moved their schedule around to take care of me that day. The front desk & Dr Zakursky called the following day to see how I was doing. The entire staff is professional, caring, friendly and put their patients first. I highly recommend Dr Zakursky and his team for any oral surgery needs. They are AMAZING!!

  • Dr Green and his staff are friendly, professional and skilled in oral surgery. My son had his wisdom teeth extracted and the nursing staff eased his anxieties while Dr Green talked him through the initial steps in the procedure. One day post-surgery, Dr Green called personally to see how my son was doing. It’s a comfort to have that level of doctor-patient interaction. I would recommend Goodove Oral Surgery for your oral surgery needs.

    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!

    I was really anxious going in to get my wisdom teeth pulled, as I've never had more than a cleaning. Everyone here was incredibly kind a professional. They talked me through everything and were very calming. I'd recommend Goodove to anyone looking for dental surgery.

    I love this Dentistry. From the 1st visit the staff and Dr. was pleasant. They made sure my son was comfortable. Dr explain everything that my son primary Dr did not explain for me to understande in lame man terms. This office went beyond their duties and handled things for me that I could not do for myself. I am so ever grateful. ❤

    I have been trying years to get my wisdom teeth out, but I’ve always been scared. I was referred to one dentist however he only provided numbing medicine and I wanted to be put to sleep. Also another kept giving me the run around. So eventually I was referred to Goodove. First visit was hard for me because I get anxiety so I had to reschedule and I didn’t think Dr. Berry understood that at first. Finally came back and was able to have a relaxing conversation with Dr. Berry. My appointment was yesterday and it was over in 30 minutes. I still had effects of the anesthesia up to 6 hours later, but it was a very pleasant and painless experience. Even post-op I was not in pain.

  • I will never go anywhere else when I need oral surgery! Absolutely a phenomenal place to go! I have severe dental problems; decay/ I needed a tooth extracted immediately. I stopped eating a couple of days ago because it was just too painful.

    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!

    Thank you so much to all of you that made my pain go away and my day better. I truly appreciate your help!

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.
