Root Canal Therapy

Root Canals in Vinings GAThe structure of a tooth is designed so that the tooth can last a lifetime. The hardest substance in the body is the enamel of a tooth, which surrounds the dentin, pulp, and roots of the inside structure of the tooth. When a tooth is damaged or decayed, the pulp center can become infected. This infection leads to intense pain in the mouth. Any intense pain inside the mouth should be addressed by a dentist right away. Here in Vinings, Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD offers the most specific dentistry techniques to restore function to the tooth and remove all infection and pain.

Root canal therapy should not be put off by anyone who is experiencing pain in a tooth. Because decay and infection can spread rapidly throughout the mouth, a root canal is effective in treating the painful infection and preventing the infection from spreading to other teeth. Common symptoms that indicate the need for root canal therapy include pain or throbbing around a tooth, pain or discomforting when biting or chewing, swelling in the gums that surrounds a painful tooth, a broken or damaged tooth, and extreme sensitivity to hot and cold while eating and drinking.

Dr. Wayne Suway has over 30 years of experience with root canal therapy. His expertise has allowed him to become trusted and loved by his patients. Dr. Suway is committed to providing comfortable, compassionate, and professional care to all of his patients. He understands that how a person feels about his/her smile can affect one’s quality of life.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers in Vinings GADental veneers can improve imperfections in a person’s smile and give them they confidence they have always wanted. Veneers are custom made shells of porcelain that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth. These shells can be used to change the color, shape, and/or size of the teeth. Veneers can also be used to “close the gap” between teeth that are not close together. Many people feel that their smile makes or breaks their appearance, but not everyone has the money needed to spend on expensive orthodontic work. Dr. Wayne Suway offers dental veneers to patients as a less expensive and much quicker option for many of his patients.

Dr. Wayne Suway is the dentist to turn to for porcelain veneers or any of your dental needs. His dedication to his patients and their oral health is obvious given that he has received a 100% satisfaction rating. With over thirty years of dental experience under his belt, Dr. Suway is a trusted source for a long-lasting, beautiful smile.

The process of a dental veneers procedure is relatively simple. The teeth must be prepared to receive the veneer. This includes trimming the teeth enough so that the veneer will sit upon the front of the teeth without adding extra thickness to the smile. After the teeth have been prepared, Dr. Suway will take a wax impression of the teeth. From this impression, the veneers will be created so that they match the shape and size of the teeth that they will be bonded to. Finally, they veneer will be applied to the teeth with durable cement. Veneers can last for years with proper oral hygiene and routine dental visits.

If you are interested in a consultation to determine if dental veneers are your best option for improving your smile, contact the office of Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD today.

Caring for Dentures

Marietta Dentures DentistIf you have made an investment in dentures, then you know how important it is to take proper care of them. Once you have gone through the process of having your mouth prepared and have been properly fitted for your dentures, you can understand the need and desire to keep them looking and feeling their best. Dr. Wayne Suway has been helping patients reconstruct their smiles with dentures for more than 30 years, and he understands that proper care of your dentures can benefit your mouth (and your wallet) for years to come.

Dentures should be handled with great care. For most people, dentures are an expensive investment that are not easily replaced. Simply folding a towel over your vanity can protect your dentures in case you accidentally drop them. Because dentures are made of plastic and metal, they can crack and shatter when dropped on a hard surface. Dentures must be brushed daily, just like natural teeth. Removing food and plaque from dentures keeps them clean, free of stains, and keeps them smelling fresh. A soft bristled brush is recommended so that it does not wear down the dentures surface. Dentures should also be cleaned regularly with a denture cleaner. Soaking the dentures in a cleaner specific to dentures can help keep them fresh — however, these cleaners cannot replace regular brushing. Having a routine set for caring for your dentures can make them last for years.

Dr. Wayne Suway is a leader in advanced denture care. When dentures are ill-fitting they can cause other oral problems, therefore it is imperative to keep regular dental appointments in order for your dentures and mouth to be cared for. Dr. Wayne Suway has worked with thousands of patients over his three-decade career, and in that time he has brought comfort, functionality, and beautiful results to his patients. Contact the office of Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD for comprehensive care of your dentures.

Missy Stone

I have known Dr. Suway for 30 years. My parents found him originally and made me a believer and life long friend and patient. In the years since, I have recommended my husband, son and friends. I would hear that going to the dentist was a fear of many people. I could never understand that because it was always a pleasure to come to Dr. Suway’s office. His staff are so professional, gentle and kind. It’s nice to see the same faces twice a year. You can tell they love working with him. I tell people that Dr. Suway gives the best shots – you can’t even feel a pinch. My son who hates needles, has no problem getting a shot for a filling. I love Dr. Suway’s personality. When you walk in the office you might hear him singing a country western song. I have porcelain veneers on my front teeth and am so thrilled. It’s been 10 years and they are still white and beautiful. He is an artist and perfectionist who loves to make people happy. I recommend Dr. Suway to become your dentist. He is a man of character and professionalism, yet down to earth. If you choose Dr. Suway, you’ll get an excellent dentist, but also a friend for life.

Dennis & Maria Liber

Dr. Suway is very relaxed and as a result we find that we are very relaxed as well. He takes the time to listen when we have concerns and he answers questions fully. We never feel like he is rushing from us to another patient. When we do need fillings, crowns or any other extensive work, he is concerned that we are comfortable and feeling no pain.

Nealean K. Austin

Through the years, we have found Dr. Suway to be a skillful perfectionist in all areas of his profession. He keeps abreast of and utilizes the latest dental techniques to improve and ensure the longevity of his patient’s teeth. He is a caring, personable professional who always greets his patients with a sincere, ready smile. Dr. Suway is also a ‘confidence booster.’ I say this because by the time I was 30 years old I was wearing dentures. He immediately recognized a self-conscious young wife, mother and professional who needed his professional help. His approach to boosting my confidence was through dental implants. At that time dental implants were a relatively new procedure. Dr. Suway carefully explained to me the advantages of dental implants and was proactive in working with my insurance provider to ensure that they understood the correlation between the required dental procedures and health plan benefits. I can smile with confidence forever because of Dr. Suway. Dr. Suway’s staff is a mirror image of his positive professionalism. They are always courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and personable. Appointments are scheduled at your convenience. You know that your time is valued because at the precise time of your appointment you are greeted, then immediately seen by either Dr. Suway or a hygienist. His work is outstanding and he is one of a kind.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Suway since 1988. Dr. Suway and his staff have provided us with state-of-the-art oral health care in a pleasant, friendly and compassionate environment for many years. Dr. Suway has done many procedures for me including root canals, crowns and a bridge. His work is beautiful. He is truly a perfectionist and that is exactly what I want in a dentist. I would never trust my smile to anyone other then Dr. Suway.
