If you have had a cavity filled before, you're not alone. Tooth decay affects more than 90% of adults over the age of 40 - a stunning statistic that, in many cases, is entirely preventable. At Merchants Walk Dental, we use composite resin fillings to keep our patient's teeth healthy and functional. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are more discreet, match the color of your teeth, and are free of mercury.
While fillings can have a few uses, our doctors typically use fillings to âfillâ a part of your tooth that is decaying. This hole of decay is called a cavity. Sometimes, fillings are also used to fix broken, cracked, or worn-down teeth from grinding and nail-biting. Fillings are a great way to restore decaying teeth to their normal shape and function while preventing sensitivity and inhibiting further decay.
During your dental exam at our office in East Cobb, your dental hygienist will check for signs of cavities and tooth decay to ensure your oral hygiene remains in peak condition.
Having served the East Cobb and Sandy Springs for years, we know your dental needs are unique and different from your neighbor. That's why we offer a variety of dental services to address each patient's special circumstances, from standard cleanings to complex root canals. By using the latest innovations and techniques in dentistry, we can better serve each client on an individualized level, leading to better comprehensive dental care.
We're taking new patients and accept most major forms of dental insurance to keep your teeth healthy and clean without breaking the bank. Contact our office today to schedule your dental exam and learn more about our history!770-691-5051

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Sandy Springs officials have approved “Springway” as the official name for the city’s trail system, which is currently under construction.
Presented by Sandy Springs Recreation and Parks Director Michael Perry at the City Council’s June 6 work session, Springway will unify each of the city’s trails with a unified blue and green theme, with trailhead monument signs and painted accents on the trail paths.
Perry said the name was chosen out of 91 options submitted by dozens of residents and was inspired by the “incredible recreation amenity” the city has.
“Augusta’s built a pedestrian bridge over the Savannah River called the ‘History Bridge,’ and they've done something very similar to this,” Mayor Rusty Paul said. “It’s very cool.”
Perry said each of the city trail segments will have its own unique name.
“We'll come back to you at the appropriate time and name the individual trails segments, based on some of their geographic features and location and environmental concerns,” he said.
Sandy Springs adopted its Master Trail Plan in 2019 after months of work with the PATH Foundation and public input.
Officials said the first trail segment running from Morgan Falls Overlook Park to Roswell Road is under construction and will be completed in 2024.
For more information about Sandy Springs trails and the city’s Master Trail Plan, visit www.sandyspringsga.gov/trail-master-plan.
At the June 6 City Council meeting, officials also selected Regent Partners and Morris & Fellows as the preferred development partner for the second phase of the City Springs campus.
As part of their proposal to the city, Regent Partners and Morris & Fellows have proposed a “vibrant” mixed-use project that complements the existing campus, developed through the latest update of the City Springs Master Plan, which was approved in December.
Phase II of the project, if developed according to plan, would include a “healthy” mix of restaurants and retail, a boutique hotel, office, limited residential and inclusive greenspace
“We create projects that are contextual to the city and its citizenry,” representatives with Regent Partners and Morris & Fellows said in the proposal. “Extraordinary design elevates our projects above the norm and creates a strong sense of place that acts as a magnet for visitation and enjoyment.”
However, city officials said the proposal in no way represents a final development plan and all options will be presented to the public for input before the plan is finalized.
“We firmly believe in Regent Partners and Morris and Fellows’ ability to bring our shared vision for the City Springs community to life,” City Manager Eden Freeman said. “This marks a significant milestone in the evolution of Sandy Springs, and we eagerly look forward to the next steps of the project, including receiving input from the community.”
After a discussion between members of the City Council, the proposal was unanimously approved.
City officials said construction on the second phase of City Springs will begin in late 2024 and is expected to be completed in 2026.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Thousands of homes in Sandy Springs were left without water for more than 24 hours last week after a water line breach caused low water pressure and water boil advisories throughout the entire city.
The City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management announced a water boil advisory for nearly all of Sandy Springs at 11:30 a.m. Sunday, June 18, so a transmission main breach near Riverside Road and Don White Memorial Park could be investigated.
Watershed Management officials discovered the water transmission line that feeds Sandy Springs water from the City of Johns Creek was breached at a point under the Chattahoochee River, which required divers to fix.
Ultimately the water line was repaired after an overnight lightning storm delay, and the advisory was lifted at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 20.
Sampling conducted after the water line was fixed confirmed that there was no contamination of the system, water system officials said.
Speaking at the Sandy Springs City Council meeting June 20, Mayor Rusty Paul said city leaders were left flat-footed by this situation, which turned into a city-wide “water crisis,” due to a breakdown in communication between Atlanta officials, Sandy Springs officials and members of the public.
“I do want to apologize to our community,” Paul said. “We generally are pretty good at communicating during emergencies and I think we did okay at communicating but we didn't live up to our normal standards.”
Following this incident, Sandy Springs elected leaders met with city staff and Atlanta representatives to assess where things went wrong and how problems can be resolved better in the future.
“Tragically, this is the second time in about the last decade, where we had a system-wide failure that affected virtually all of the city,” Paul said.
At the city’s annual retreat held in January, Sandy Springs officials said that improving local water reliability would be one of their top priorities for 2023.
City Attorney Dan Lee said that since the city’s inception in 2005, it has purchased its water from the City of Atlanta, using various systems built by different developers over the years, including some installed when Sandy Springs was part of unincorporated Fulton County.
“When developers wanted to leave Atlanta and go to unincorporated Fulton County, Fulton County would not provide water, so Atlanta was the only source,” Lee said. “To their credit, they allowed developers to build out their system and turn it over to the city.”
This mish-mash infrastructure of the city’s water system has caused countless headaches, Lee said. Without intervention, the city could face massive problems.
But until now, Lee said officials in Atlanta and Fulton County have been unwilling to take up the city’s concerns about water delivery, leading to multiple lawsuits, arbitration and appeals to the Georgia Supreme Court.
“We've prevailed on all five actions to get to the point of letting our experts go examine the system of Atlanta,” he said.
That examination produced a 1,100-page report on the water system, showing Sandy Spring’s water actually comes from the City of Johns Creek and the system needs roughly $50 million in immediate repairs.
“There has been no real improvement to the water system in 50 years,” he said.
But under Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens, Lee said Atlanta officials have been open to new negotiations over the city’s water contract, and Sandy Springs leaders believe a positive resolution is on the horizon in the next year.
Paul said after meeting with Dickens on Tuesday, they feel as if they have reached a better understanding of how to communicate in the case of a water emergency.
“I also want to thank the mayor of Atlanta. The city manager and I went down and met with Mayor Dickens today, within 48 hours after the event to sit down and do some Monday morning quarterbacking,” he said. “So, if something like this happens again, we know who to call and they know who to call.”
In the future, Paul said that city residents should make sure they are signed up for Sandy Springs emergency alerts, which can be found by visiting sandyspringsga.gov/sandy-springs-alerts.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Sandy Springs reported Monday morning that repairs were complete and water pressure was being restored after a situation over the weekend that caused a boil water advisory.
On Twitter, the city said water pressure would fully return around 10 a.m.
It's unclear how much longer the boil water advisory will need to remain in place. The tweet said it will "remain until ADW is cleared to lift the advisory following sampling protocols 24 hours."
"We will continue to update as we receive more information," the city said.
The city also said on Twitter earlier in the morning that Atlanta Watershed had ben "working throughout the night" to restore service.
" A new part had to be fabricated to make the repair, which was completed earlier this morning," the tweet said. "Diver crews are currently working on installing the new part."
In a release, Sandy Springs said work had been done on a 48-inch transmission main on Riverside Road near the Don White Memorial Park.
"In order to protect the public from a potential health hazard, all residents and property owners that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use or use bottled water, for drinking, cooking, preparing baby food, or brushing teeth. The water should be boiled for one minute past a rolling boil. Infants, the elderly, and those with immune deficiencies should be particularly cautious. Do not drink water from public water fountains in the impacted area," a release stated.

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Residents in Sandy Springs are likely waking up to low, or no water pressure whatsoever on Sunday.
A tweet from Atlanta Watershed mentions that crews are investigating a "possible breach on a 48-inch transmission main," specifically near Riverside Road and Don White Memorial Park.
The organization adds that until repairs are complete, there may be low water pressure.
Shortly after the announcement, the Department of Watershed Management (DWM) issued a boil water advisory as a result.
"All residents and property owners that have experienced water outages and/or low water pressures are advised to boil all water prior to use or use bottled water, for drinking, cooking, preparing baby food, or brushing teeth," a statement read. "The water should be boiled for one minute past a rolling boil. Infants, the elderly, and those with immune deficiencies should be particularly cautious. Do not drink water from public water fountains in the impacted area."
The DWM added that washing one's hands, or showering with soap and water should be fine. However, if one is washing his or her hands before preparing food, make sure to boil the water and let it cool before.
