Wisdom Teeth Removal, Marietta

Wisdom Teeth Removal

The last four molars to arrive in the mouth are the wisdom teeth. Since these teeth arrive near adulthood in the late teens, they were titled “wisdom” teeth. For many people, wisdom teeth simply grow into place and take the last spot open at the ends of their upper and lower teeth. For others, these last molars can cause many issues and complications if they are not removed. Our team at Dental Care Center at Kennestone can help determine if you need wisdom teeth removed and perform this general dentistry procedure if it is necessary.

Removing wisdom teeth can be done proactively. This is if it is determined they are growing in the wrong direction or pose a risk to your oral health. Often all four teeth are removed in one procedure, but singular teeth can be removed as needed. Many people prefer sedation during their wisdom teeth removal, which we offer at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. We have oral conscious and IV sedation available for our patients undergoing this procedure.

Wisdom Tooth Complications

Wisdom teeth do not always arrive without complications or problems. Some become impacted in the gum tissue, where they do not completely emerge. This can cause pain and infection if they are not removed. Upper wisdom teeth can cause sinus problems for some people. In others, the mouth is too crowded, causing these molars to grow in sideways or push against other teeth. This can cause alignment issues that may require orthodontic care if the wisdom teeth are not removed. Even if wisdom teeth come in correctly, they can be difficult to keep clean and are often at risk for decay.

If you or your teenager need wisdom tooth removal, our team at Dental Care Center at Kennestone can ensure you get the best care available. We offer a relaxing, calm environment with sedation options for your procedure. Contact our office to schedule a wisdom tooth exam to determine the health of your wisdom teeth and whether removal is needed.

  • 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.
