Removing and Replacing Your Dead Tooth

Vinings GA DentistAlthough it may be hard to believe, your teeth are living structures. While they are hard on the outside, there are nerves inside your teeth (pulp) that control blood flow and require nourishment. Your teeth can be considered another organ in your body!

Just like other living parts of our body, if your teeth don’t receive proper nourishment and care, they can die. This often occurs when the inner tooth tissues are severely compromised, either by infection, decay or trauma. Once the vital supply of nutrients and blood is cut off from a tooth, it will die.

Dental Visits While Breastfeeding

Marietta GA Dentist for Pregnant WomenDuring pregnancy, expectant mothers have a long time to think about their growing baby, or babies. They have time to decorate a nursery, choose just the right name, and plan for how to adjust to a new normal once the baby is brought home. Since time began, mothers have been known to worry about everything concerning their children, and these worries often start long before a child is miraculously brought into the world. One area of concern for many mothers once their baby is born is whether dental treatments will affect their milk supply and affect a nursing baby. Many women avoid visiting the dentist for months because they are concerned with how medications used during dental treatments will affect their milk. Dr. Wayne Suway is committed to providing exceptional care to his patients and hopes to help clarify guidelines for mothers who are breastfeeding healthy, full-term babies. (more…)

Acid Erosion

Atlanta GA General Dentist near ViningsDespite the fact that tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, it is not invincible. Your teeth are at the mercy of what you choose to put into your mouth on a daily basis. Your choices will either benefit your oral health or put it in harm’s way. Foods and beverages that you choose to consume have a direct impact on the health of your teeth and gums. Aside from the vulnerability for teeth to develop cavities, teeth are also susceptible to acid erosion if you consume highly acidic dietary choices regularly.

There are some foods and beverages that are naturally more acidic than others. Alcohol, tea, coffee, carbonated beverages, citrus fruits, tomatoes, and pickled vegetables are among those with the highest acidic content. (more…)

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.

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.

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.
