Just recently I had to have a tooth extracted and an implant. The front office staff was great and professional. The surgical team was outstanding they took their time to explain to me more about the procedure, answer any questions I had and calm my nerves. Dr. Bankston is the best, he treated me like I was his only patient, took time to explain the procedure and does awesome work. I would highly recommend the AOFS team!!!
What a STAFF! My initial contact with Stephanie made the beginning surgery procedure and process very positive and comforting. All front office and other staff members made my process so professional and friendly. I did not even know when my extraction and implant was complete, just remember getting into my friend's car headed home. My experience was very pleasant and timely.I saw Dr. Bankston briefly, was found him to be "cool" and really cared about my wellbeing. I could tell he was smiling at moments, (even I could not see his smile because of his protective equipment and mask) especially when he noticed my fluorescent green sneakers. Have nothing but LOVE and THANKS to AOS of Kennestone !!
I treated with Dr. Thomas David, TMJ/TMD Specialist, who provides non-surgical treatment. After a very detailed initial visit, with x-rays, and written instructions on do’s and dont’s to help TMJ, he referred me to TMJ Physical Therapy. I learned so much about what was causing my excruciating jaw pain, jaws popping, jaw stiffness, and headaches, and how these specific exercises are designed for significant improvement and preparation for wearing the oral appliance, which was ordered once PT was completed. My appliance is working great!! I am very excited, because I have had years of jaw pain and headaches, with nothing that worked, until I saw Dr. David. I wish I had found him sooner. And, his office staff is also awesome.
Dr. Bankston was very professional, he took the time to understand my specific situation, answered all my questions and put me at ease with the overall procedure. The extraction went without a hitch I was out of there before I knew it , no pain and a tremendous pain free recovery. Thank you to the whole staff for squeezing me in on short notice for this emergency extraction, I will definitely be recommending your facility!
Best oral surgeon team in the U.S.! Made every step so easy and really care about you as a patient! Thank you to the entire team! Every office should take notes!

Full-Mouth Dental Implants and Implant-Supported Dentures
Don’t let missing teeth continue to be a source of embarrassment. Dental implants provide a natural-feeling replacement option to restore your smile’s appearance and functionality. Our Kennestone office specializes in full-mouth dental implants, implant-supported dentures, and bone grafting for optimal dental implant placement. Talk to our doctor today to see if they’re right for your lifestyle and budget.
Wisdom Teeth Removal to Avoid Infections and Impacted Teeth
By early adulthood, most of our patients will require wisdom teeth removal. Your wisdom teeth are your third molars, which come in last. Because your mouth is designed to accommodate 28 teeth, these extra four can quickly become a problem. This outpatient procedure prevents overcrowding, infections, and impacted teeth. We pride ourselves on offering safe, gentle wisdom teeth extraction.
General Anesthesia: We Offer IV & Oral Sedation & Laughing Gas
If you need oral surgery, we offer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and relaxation during the procedure. Depending on your health and the type of surgery you need, we have several options. We offer oral and intravenous (IV) sedation, as well as traditional nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
Non-Surgical Procedures for TMJ Disorder & Sleep Apnea
Not every procedure at our Kennestone office involves surgery. We provide several non-surgical procedures, including oral appliances for sleep apnea and steroid injections for TMJ disorders. Please visit us today for additional information about any of your options.
Facial Reconstruction Surgery Corrects Jaw Misalignments
One of the more complex oral surgeries we provide is facial reconstruction to correct misaligned jaws. Whether caused by a birth defect or traumatic injury, jaw misalignments can affect your bite and health. We won’t recommend this type of treatment until we complete a thorough exam and x-rays. Feel free to ask any questions during your pre-treatment consultation with our oral surgeons in Marietta.
Bone Grafting Prepares Many Patients for Dental Implants
Our oral surgeons use bone grafting to restore dental implant sites for many patients. With guided bone regeneration, it is possible to grow bone wherever needed. Taking bone from another area of your body or a tissue bank, bone grafting also corrects many issues caused by disease, injury, or birth defects.
Surgical and Non-Surgical TMJ Treatment for Pain Relief
Patients with frequent headaches, stiff jaw muscles, and popping noises when they open their mouth could have a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders are usually caused by injury or disease. We offer both surgical and non-surgical TMJ treatments at our Kennestone office. Once we’ve confirmed a TMJ disorder diagnosis, our doctors may suggest wearing a splint, exercising your jaw, and other treatments.
An Oral Pathology Consultation Could Save Your Life
Oral cancer manifests itself in many ways. Some people may notice sores that don’t heal or bleed easily, while others may experience chronic sore throat or hoarseness. Whatever the warning signs, don’t ignore them. Turn to our oral pathology experts for a consultation. It could end up saving your life.
