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

How safe are dental x-rays?

Smiling Woman | Dental x-ray safety At Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry, we always have your utmost safety in mind. We have chosen to use digital x-rays because they provide us with detailed images of what's going on inside your teeth, and expose you to about 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.

We've seen a lot of improvements in dental technology in the last few years. Digital x-rays have quickly become one of the most important diagnostic tools used in dentistry today. Comprehensive visual exams are a valuable tool, but of course we cannot see deep inside your tooth to detect early signs of decay. Periodic x-rays provide us with a detailed picture that will help us guide you in important decisions about your dental care. How often we need to take x-rays depends on your current condition and dental history.

For some patients, x-rays are necessary every six months. However, if you don’t have a history of problems like gum disease and visit us regularly, you may only need x-rays every couple years. If you’re a new patient, it may be necessary to take x-rays during your first exam so we can start to develop a history as well as monitor changes to your oral health.
