Tooth Extractions, Marietta

Tooth Extractions

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but few people last their whole life without losing a tooth. Trauma, disease and growth issues can all lead to lost teeth. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we focus on preventive and proactive dental care to protect our patients’ natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are times when teeth must be removed for the oral health of our patients.

If a tooth is too deeply damaged or no longer has the bone support to stay in place, it may need extraction. Our team will always look at options to save a tooth before recommending extraction. If removing the tooth is the only solution, we provide a comfortable, relaxing environment for your procedure. We have sedation options available for those that want a deeper level of relaxation during their tooth extraction, including oral conscious and IV sedation.

Gentle Tooth Removal

Whether you have a diseased tooth that needs to be removed or wisdom teeth that are causing problems, our team at Dental Care Center at Kennestone can offer a stress-free tooth removal experience. Our dentist will explain the procedure to make you comfortable and prepare you for what to expect. Most tooth extractions are quick and simple. Single tooth extractions may only take a few minutes once the anesthesia takes effect. After the tooth or teeth are removed, we will give you detailed instructions to care for your gums while they heal. You can expect some soreness for a few days which can be treated with pain medication.

When you need a tooth removed for any reason, you want an experienced, compassionate dental team on your side. Come to us at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. We offer gentle tooth extractions from an experienced dental team with sedation available. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment.

  • 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.
