Tooth Pain Relief

When you have a severe toothache or your jaw aches when you talk, your days can be miserable. Oral pain can interrupt your sleep and occupy your mind during your waking hours. At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we have solutions for your tooth and jaw pain. Our team of dental professionals can find the cause of most oral pain and recommend a general dentistry treatment.

Tooth pain is an indicator of a serious problem. The nerve roots of a tooth are inside the pulp of the tooth canal. If these nerves are sending pain signals, decay, infection or trauma have reached this inner portion of the tooth. Tooth pain rarely will go away on its own, and the problem will likely become more serious. Our team can repair most issues that cause tooth pain and restore your tooth back to health.

Treatment for Jaw Pain

Jaw pain is often a result of excess stress put on the jaw joint. This can be due to clenching your jaw from stress, nocturnal teeth grinding or other issues. Misalignment or a poor fitting bite can also put stress on the jaw. This can lead to TMJ or TMD and may result in dysfunction of the jaw as well as pain.

If you have jaw pain, come see us at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. Our dentist will perform a thorough exam to determine the cause of your jaw pain and offer a treatment option. Orthodontics, tooth repairs or dental nightguards are some of the treatments used to combat some causes of jaw pain and give relief.

When you have oral pain, give us a call at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. Our experienced dental team will get to the source of the pain and offer a treatment solution. Our office accepts many forms of dental insurance, and we have payment plans available. Contact our office today to put an end to your tooth or jaw pain.

  • 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.
