Frequently Asked Questions

As a family dentist, Dr. Kai Liang takes the safety of our patients very seriously. We only recommend x-rays when it’s essential, and if we think it’s necessary, we will explain the reason for the x-ray and how it will benefit your oral health.

Modern Dental X-Rays

For your safety and peace of mind, we are pleased to offer state-of-the-art digital x-rays that can reduce your exposure to radiation by as much as 90% compared to film x-rays.

Another benefit of using digital x-rays is that the high-resolution images they produce are very detailed, allowing us to identify and treat small problems before they become big problems. Digital x-rays are also a fantastic educational tool because we can share the images with you so you can see exactly what we see.

Digital x-rays can also save you money over the long term. Finding and treating decay in the early stages saves you money because we can address these problems when they’re small and easy to correct. Without early treatment, these conditions can develop to the point where complicated and costly dental care may be our only option for saving a tooth.

United Healthcare Dental

Yes, our team always performs a thorough oral cancer screening of your entire mouth during regular checkups. The exam includes your teeth, gum tissues, jaw joints, and the bone structure around your teeth. This is an extremely important part of your routine oral health care because regular oral cancer screenings at our Alpharetta dental office can help us detect the disease in its early stages, potentially saving a life.

Studies by the Oral Cancer Foundation indicate that nearly 50,000 cases of oral cancer are diagnosed in America each year. Unfortunately, the mortality rate associated with oral cancer is high. This is due to the fact that the cancer is often not discovered until it has progressed to the more advanced stages. With early detection, however, oral cancer is highly treatable, with a 90% survival rate.

Oral Cancer Screening Process in Alpharetta

An oral cancer screening takes just a few minutes and is nothing to worry about. We will examine your teeth, lips, and gums for any signs of abnormalities. For instance, what looks like a normal white spot to you might be recognized by Dr. Liang as precancerous.

Please contact our Alpharetta dental office and we'll be happy to arrange an exam and cleaning that includes an oral cancer screening. 

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.

Modern Digital Dental 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.

Contact Our Alpharetta Dental Office

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.

Patient in pain | Sensitive Dental FillingsIt is not uncommon to experience sensitivity with some fillings. Sometimes a tooth is generally sensitive to touch and changes in temperature. In other cases, a tooth with deep decay may take a little longer to return to feeling normal because there isn't enough "insulation" between the filling and the nerve.

One bit of advice we offer patients at Alpharetta Creek Restorative Dentistry who experience sensitivity is if the tooth is feeling a little better each day, just give it time. However, if you are very uncomfortable and the sensitivity doesn't seem to be diminishing, please let us know.

How to Treat a Sensitive Tooth

When we place a new filling, we are always very careful to ensure that your teeth are meeting properly when you bite down and that there are no high spots. These high spots place excess force on the filled tooth, leading to sensitivity and discomfort.

However, you may be one of the many people who have a general problem with tooth sensitivity. If so, Dr. Kai Liang may recommend a desensitizing toothpaste like Sensodyne that contains potassium nitrate to calm the nerves in your tooth.

Reach Out to Our Alpharetta Dental Office

If you notice that one of your fillings feels sensitive and uncomfortable, please call our Alpharetta dental office so we can determine what's causing the problem.
