After careful consideration of the latest CDC and government recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to close our office for all patients with general dental needs until Monday, March 30th, 2020; however, we will open for emergency patients on an as-needed basis. Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry is committed to flatten the curve and slow progression of this illness in our community. We have enforced extra measures to ensure our office is a safe environment and we are proud of our daily infection control, but we also recognize the importance of practicing social distance and reducing public exposure. 

During this time, we remain committed to serving your dental needs. Our office is scheduled to open on Monday, April 6th, 2020, but should anything change with our schedule, our staff will keep you updated. Stay well and help those around you who are in need!  Dr. Kai, Dr. Obeid, and staff

Have Depression? Study Identifies a Possible Link to Oral Health

Depression and Oral Health | Alpharetta Dentist

Alpharetta dentist Dr. Kai Liang sees patients every day who struggle with the problem of missing teeth. Of course, a missing tooth can take a toll on your oral health, and you also know you can’t feel your best with a big gap in your smile. 

Oral Health and Your Overall Health

But according to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the problem is more than esthetic. People who have dental anxiety and skip visits to the dentist are at increased risk for early tooth loss. And a recent study by the AAID shows that the loss of teeth was a significant contributor to depression and anxiety.

We want to help you avoid getting to the point where depression over poor oral health or tooth loss rules your life. You may be stuck on the idea that dental visits have to be stressful or uncomfortable. If this is the case, you owe it to yourself and your oral health to seek out a compassionate dentist who will do everything to put you at ease.

You may feel embarrassed about sharing your concerns with a dentist. But we assure you that opening up and letting your dentist know how you feel is essential. Dental anxiety is very common, and we aren’t here to judge you because you missed a few appointments and let your oral health slide.
