Dental Implants

Vinings Dental ImplantsA dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are typically a good option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to accident, injury, or periodontal disease. Dental implants have been called a modern miracle in dental procedures because of their effectiveness at replacing missing teeth permanently. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD has over 25 years of experience and offers comprehensive implant services to his patients. Recognized as a Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, Dr. Suway is a trusted and highly respected dentist in the Vinings area.

The number one benefit of dental implants is that they provide a permanent replacement solution for missing teeth. While dental bridges and crowns have been used for many years at replacing missing teeth, they have not provided a permanent solution and have needed to be replaced, on average, every ten years. Not only do dental implants provide a permanent replacement, they are also customized to each patient in order to look and feel like natural teeth. The implanted roots are custom designed to fit the socket where there is a missing tooth so that they fit securely and have no movement or slippage within the gum line. This customization allows each patient to achieve the exact restoration that s/he needs.

Patients with healthy gum tissues and adequate jawbone density are typically very good candidates for dental implants. If you are interested in receiving more information regarding dental implants, please contact the dental practice of Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD today to schedule a consultation. With over 25 years of experience in implant dentistry, and with his personalized care to all patients, Dr. Suway is the dentist you can trust to restore your smile beautifully with dental implants.

The Good and Bad of At Home Whitening

Teeth Whitening in Vinings GAHome whitening kits became popular in the early 1990s. With the popularity of gleaming white smiles gracing the covers of magazines and on the face of stars in Hollywood, people all over America wanted to know how they could achieve a bright smile. At home whitening kits have become safer and, in some cases, more cost effective than they were in the 90s. However, some products on the market are still extremely risky for at home use. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD is the trusted dental source in Vinings and has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years. He offers patients safe and extremely effective teeth whitening procedures in his office or at home using a prescription whitening treatment customized for each patient.

There are certain serious, negative side effects that can occur when using at home whitening kits. The number one negative consequence from whitening at home is the increased risk of oral infections due to damage that has been done to the gums and other soft oral tissues due to high concentrations of bleach or peroxide. Over concentration of these ingredients can cause erosion of tooth enamel and severe irritation to the gums. Another negative side effect is the internal problems associated with swallowing these chemicals. Damage to the esophagus and lining of the stomach have all been documented from at home whitening usage. Poorly fitted dental trays, or using an improper amount of the whitening solution, can cause accidental ingestion of bleach and peroxide.

At the dental practice of Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD, we are proud to offer patients a highly effective prescription whitening treatment to his patients. He has helped countless patients achieve dramatic results in just a short amount of time. Whether you are interested in an in-office procedure or have an at-home kit customized for you, Dr. Wayne Suway is here to serve you and help you attain the bright smile you have always wanted. Call today.

Rinsing the Mouth after Eating

Marietta DentistThere are a wide variety of mouthwashes available on the market today. While some claim to freshen your breath, prevent tartar and plaque buildup, help see which teeth are dirty and need extra attention, and even promote prevention from gum disease – many people still wonder if rinsing with a mouthwash is important. Proper oral hygiene is made up of different aspects, none exclusive from the other when it comes to oral health. For instance, just because people brush their teeth twice a day does not mean that they do not need to floss. The same is true for rinsing.

Rinsing the mouth with water or mouthwash after eating meals will help to fight against gum disease, prevent cavities, and freshen the breath. Following a meal, the mouth fills with bacteria. While this sounds like something out of a horror movie, it is the way the mouth was designed. These bacteria attack the sugars and starches from the foods and break them down. While this is a natural process, the extreme number of bacteria in the mouth should not be allowed to hang out for a long period of time. Rinsing the mouth will wash away the excessive amounts of bacteria to keep the teeth protected until they can be brushed properly. However, even after rinsing and brushing, some particles of food will still be left between the teeth. This is where flossing comes in! Floss removes the food from between the teeth so that plaque will not develop and lead to gum disease. So, while rinsing is an important aspect of oral hygiene (with water or mouthwash), it alone is not enough.

Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years, and he offers his dental expertise to all of his patients. If your mouth is more susceptible to cavities and/or plaque buildup he can help you determine which rinse is the most beneficial to your oral health. Dr. Wayne Suway takes great care with each of his patients, and he would be proud to serve as your family’s dentist. Call today to schedule an appointment.

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.

Allison Lewis

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.
