Patient Testimonials

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!

This is in reference to the Suffolk location.

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. So eventually I was referred to Goodove. First visit was hard for me because I get anxiety so I had to reschedule. 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 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!

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

 

The preparation of your mouth before the placement of a prosthesis is referred to as pre-prosthetic surgery.

 

Some patients require minor oral surgical procedures before receiving a partial or complete denture, in order to ensure the maximum level of comfort. A denture sits on the bone ridge, so it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size. If a tooth needs to be extracted, the underlying bone might be left sharp and uneven. For the best fit of a denture, the bone might need to be smoothed out or reshaped. Occasionally, excess bone would need to be removed prior to denture insertion.

 

One or more of the following procedures might need to be performed in order to prepare your mouth for a denture:

 

  • Bone smoothing and reshaping
  • Removal of excess bone
  • Bone ridge reduction
  • Removal of excess gum tissue
  • Exposure of impacted teeth

 

We will review your particular needs with you during your appointment.
