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

Are dental x-rays safe?

Because dental x-rays are the most valuable diagnostic tool we have available at Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry, we use them to detect conditions in their earliest stages. Finding and treating problems when they are small minimizes your risk of discomfort and the need for more complex and costly treatments in the future.

Our goal is to use updated technologies like digital x-rays when we know they will benefit you. Compared to film-based x-rays, digital radiography exposes you to about 90 percent less radiation.

When thinking about exposure, you should know that radiation is all around us in the environment. For example, a two-hour flight exposes you to about the same levels as a set of bitewing dental x-rays, and we found that the diagnostic benefits of x-rays offset the small amount of exposure. Of course, your safety and comfort are of the utmost importance to us, so all patients must wear a lead-lined apron that provides an extra layer of protection.

Digital dental x-rays are a valuable diagnostic tool but as your family dentist in Milton, GA, we want you to feel fully informed and in control of every aspect of your treatment. Please call us if you have questions about the safety of dental x-rays so we can put your fears to rest.
