    I was in excellent hands with the staff at Goodove Oral Surgery. They made me feel special and very comfortable. Dr. Goodove is a wonderful surgeon and shows great compassion as well as his staff. I wish that I can remember his assistant’s name! I’ve had anyone do for me what she had done. Thank you all so very much!!!

    Dr Goodove is a great Oral Surgeon and I would highly recommend him for any procedure. I especially appreciate that Dr Goodove makes sure that I am never in any pain.
    (My experiences were Tooth Removal, Dental Implant, lancing swelling, and removing scar tissue from inside my cheek)
    My experiences with Dr. Goodove and his staff began earlier this year when I had a root canal fail and ended up referred to have the swelling drained. Unfortunately the tooth could not be saved. During a pandemic is the worst time to have a problem with everyone shut down. Dr Goodove and his staff especially Carrie went above and beyond to help me. They kept in contact with me during the shut down (thank you Carrie) and called me in to the office (which was closed) to remove the tooth.
    This week I have begun the dental implant process and my experiences with Dr Goodove, Carrie, Amy and the entire staff has been consistent since I first met them several months ago. All of them have been professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Thank you.

  • 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.

    Great visit; surgery went well; was in and out quickly. Wish I could have seen the surgeon afterwards--I had a couple questions which will have to wait till Monday so I can call the office and get the answers.

    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).

    Today I had two wisdom teeth pulled. I recommended Goodove, they make you feel comfortable and everyone is friendly. Thank you all.

  • 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.

    We had an awesome experience with the entire team at Goodove. My daughter had her wisdom teeth removed today & they were amazing with her. They kept her comfortable and talked her through everything. The nurse in the room was super sweet. Thanks for everything guys. Jada Miller.

  • 5 stars all the way! Our experience with this office was top of the line. Dr. Zagursky and his staff were phenomenal. From the consultation to even after the surgery, they made sure we understood everything and followed up with us, and answered any and all questions. Dr. Zagursky takes his time when he meets with families and he made me feel like we were his only clients. I would definitely recommend this team and I would go back for any future dental/surgical needs.

    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 boys both had their wisdom teeth taken out at the same time. Staff was knowledgeable and courteous. Staff was available and answered questions when I called after the procedure. Even with COVID-19 the surgery was quick and everything went well.

    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!

  • 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!

    Dr. Goodove and the nurse, staffs are amazing. I removed my wisdom teeth while awake, I was so nervous but the nurse tried to make me calm while being friendly. Dr. Goodove did wonderful job on my wisdom teeth extraction. He is very skilled and professional.

    I have been 100 percent happy with Goodove Oral Surgery. I continue to go there for any dental work.
    It has been a blessing. It’s not something that any of us look forward to but when needed, without a doubt I would return to Goodove Dental.

  • The staff greeted you with a smile and very polite. My appointment was at 10:20 and was brought back in less than 10 minutes. 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.

    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!

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • I just want to give a BIG thank you to Dr Z and his assistant, Meagan. They were so patient with me and thorough throughout the procedure. Constantly asking how I was and explaining each step of the procedure. I would highly recommend Goodove to anyone and will definitely go to them if need be in the future.

    The staff at Goodove Oral Surgery in Chesapeake were exceptional. Dr. Zagursky and Neketa were compassionate, fast, and efficient. If I had more wisdome teeth to be pulled, I would certainly visit them. Thank you both for making me comfortable, answering my questions, and providing quality and safe patient care.

  • 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 have used Goodove Oral Surgery once before and both times I have been very satisfied with my care. My surgeon and his aides were very attentive and took good care of me. I had Dr. Zagursky and I highly recommend him to have any work done. They take good care of you at this practice.

    The office took me quickly because I was in pain. They were so organized in the office. The doctors assistant was absolutely super. She was caring and so professional. Talked with me because I was scared and nervous. Can't say enough about her. Doctor did a good job and cared enough because I came such a long distance. No problems after surgery. Followed all directions for a good recovery.

    I was a little nervous because I don't like needles. But after that it was like sitting in your car while your getting your tires changed.. Some jurking and some sounds but completely painless!! Maybe it was the nitro that let me relax fully and no pain really made the difference.. And don't get me started on the staff. Amber!! Omg she was so informative and super easy to talk to. The rest of the staff were very polite as well. Thanks Goodove Oral Surgery!!

  • It’s really easy, comfortable and affordable! They accept Tricare which is a huge bonus but outside of that everything is so well organized. Everyone who works there, whether intended or not, really made me feel comfortable and at ease as if I’d have been going there for years. Once my tooth was pulled they even took the time to make sure I knew what I needed and thoroughly told me how to take care of myself. I love it!

    The team at Goodove oral surgery in Chesapeake was so professional and attentive. My son got his wisdom teeth taken out by them and they were wonderful. 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 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.

    Check in was fast if you filled out the forms online before your appointment. Staff was friendly and i was called in the back within 5 minutes. Once in the room, consultation was quick and straight to the point. Dr Goodove explained everything. I was able to get an appointment the next day for surgery. It was all over within 20 minutes and i had no pain at all afterwards. Three days later and i have not taken any pain pills that was prescribed. Best experience ever. Definitely above 5 stars

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.

    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!

    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.

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.
