Dental Pain Marietta GA

At Dental Care at Kennestone, our Marietta dental team is currently practicing “social distancing” due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we’re still available to provide essential care services such as same-day emergency treatments.

But what warrants itself as a dental emergency? Some of the most common scenarios where we might need to see you include examples like:

Knocked-Out Teeth

Avulsed (knocked out) teeth should be reinserted if at all possible. But don’t force it. If you see visible debris you can gently rinse the tooth off, but do not scrub it!

A Chipped Tooth

Fractured teeth can be mild enough to not require treatment, or so severe that we’ll want to try bonding the fragment back into place. For the best results, you need to store the chipped portion in liquid and get it to our office within the next hour or two.

Abscessed Teeth

Is there visible swelling on your gums or pus that’s draining from a tooth? Rinse with warm salt water, take some ibuprofen, and then call our office to arrange endodontic therapy as soon as things settle down.

Broken Dental Work

Whether you cracked a denture, or your dental crown fell off, it can ruin your day! We encourage you to call our office immediately to discuss the next steps.

Tooth Pain

Moderate to severe tooth pain may require something like an extraction or root canal, depending on what’s wrong. But at a time like this, an antibiotic and anti-inflammatory may be your best solution.

Looking for an emergency dentist in Marietta? Call Dental Care at Kennestone today for assistance. If it’s after hours, leave a message and someone will be in contact with you as soon as possible.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
