Patient Testimonials

I had my upper right wisdom tooth extracted this morning and the staff and doctor were exceptionally wonderful. Delanie prepped me and Dr. Lee did the extraction and had me in and out in under 45mins. My appt was at 830, I was numbed by 845 and by 855 I was coming resting comfortably with one less tooth! I'm typically scared of any type of oral pain but Dr. Lee made sure I was numb and Delanie made sure the laughing gas kept me calm and comfortable. The tooth was huge! They've already called to check on me and overall both the practice and staff are welcoming and hospitable. I've already raved so much about the care that I've received from them to my husband that he's going to let them take care of his wisdom teeth! I could not reccomend them enough!

Going into the process of removing my wisdom teeth people told me their horror stories none of which matched my actually experience. Victoria kept me cool and calm and Dr. Goodove was fantastic through the whole procedure. He talked me through and before I knew it we were done. Highly recommend this practice 🙂

Dr. Goodove and his staff were amazing from start to finish. My daughter had a great experience while getting her wisdom teeth pulled, and continues to heal nicely. I will definitely take my other daughters to Dr. Goodove when the time comes for them to get their wisdom teeth removed. Would highly recommend Goodove Oral Surgery!

I had the pleasure of speaking with Mrs. Ashley to set up an appointment. I was nervous about switching doctors but she ensured that I was in great hands. Not only does Ashley have the most soothing voice, she was prompt with scheduling and quite knowledgeable of policies and procedures . A great person to have on your team.

After Exposure of an Impacted Tooth

 

Do not disturb the wound. If surgical packing was placed, leave it alone. The pack helps to keep the tooth exposed. If it gets dislodged or falls out do not get alarmed.

 

Bleeding

 

Some bleeding or redness in the saliva is normal for 24 hours. Excessive bleeding which results in your mouth filling rapidly with blood can frequently be controlled by biting with pressure on a gauze pad placed directly on the bleeding wound for 30 minutes. If bleeding continues please call for further instructions.

 

Swelling

 

Swelling is a normal occurrence after surgery. To minimize swelling, apply an ice bag or a plastic bag or towel filled with ice cubes on the cheek in the area of surgery. Apply the ice continuously as much as possible for the first 36 hours.

 

Diet

 

Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid hot liquids or food. Soft food and liquids should be eaten on the day of surgery. Return to a normal diet as soon as possible unless otherwise directed.

 

Pain

 

You should begin taking pain medication as soon as you feel the local anesthetic wearing off. For moderate pain, 1 or 2 Tylenol or Extra Strength. Tylenol may be taken every 3-4 hours. Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) may be taken instead of Tylenol. Ibuprofen bought over the counter comes in 200 mg tablets: 2-3 tablets may be taken every 3-4 hours as needed for pain. For severe pain, the prescribed medication should be taken as directed.

 

Oral Hygiene

 

Mouth cleanliness is essential to good healing. Clean your mouth thoroughly after each meal beginning the day after surgery. Brush your teeth as best you can. Rinse with warm salt water (1/2 teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) six times a day. Continue this procedure until healing is complete.

 

REMEMBER: A clean wound heals better and faster.

 

Activity

 

Keep physical activities to a minimum immediately following surgery. If you are considering exercise, throbbing or bleeding may occur. If this occurs, you should discontinue exercising. Be aware that your normal nourishment intake is reduced. Exercise may weaken you. If you get light headed, stop exercising.
