Why Titanium?

Dentists in Vinings near Atlanta GAYou have probably heard about the remarkable strength and durability of dental implants. This can be largely attributed to the fact that the prosthetic tooth roots of dental implants are made of titanium. Why use this material? And what makes titanium so beneficial when it comes to replacing teeth?

Here are some basic reasons why titanium is the material of choice in today’s dental implants:

Biocompatible

Titanium is a distinctive metal that is biocompatible, meaning it is well accepted in the human body and not harmful or toxic to living tissue. In fact, many joint replacement surgeries involve the use of titanium.

Strength and Durability

Titanium is also marked by its high durability. It is one of the only materials that have been found to strengthen the bone after it is installed for its intended purpose.

Osseointegration

One of the most unique qualities of titanium is its ability to fuse directly to the jaw bone. Since titanium is the material that acts as the tooth root in a dental implant, it is highly important that this “root” has something to anchor to. Essentially, osseointegration is what makes dental implants work and titanium is what allows them to do so. Osseointegration is the direct structural and functional connection between living bone and the surface of a load-bearing artificial implant. This fusing process typically occurs over the course of 3 to 6 months. Your implants dentist will monitor your healing very carefully before placing a restoration (crown) or fixed dentures on top of the implant.

The use of titanium in dental implants has revolutionized the way patients replace missing teeth. This unique, durable and biocompatible metal is what helps countless patients feel confident in living with dental implants.

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.
