Dental Cleanings 101

Dental Cleanings in Marietta GARegular dental cleanings are an essential component of oral hygiene. By neglecting to keep regularly scheduled dental cleaning appointments, people are allowing bacteria and plaque to grow inside their mouths and do damage to their teeth and gums that is often not reversible. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD understands the important relationship between a person’s oral health and routine dental cleanings. There is no need to be anxious about visiting our dental practice in Marietta for a dental cleaning or dental treatment. Dr. Suway and his friendly staff are caring and committed to providing gentle care to all patients.

Dental cleanings are performed in the office with the use of different instruments. These instruments are designed to clean the spaces between the teeth that brushing and flossing cannot fully reach. An ultrasonic cleaner, a water sprayer, a rotary toothbrush with a special polishing toothpaste, and a fluoride treatment are all common tools used by Dr. Suway and his staff to thoroughly clean the teeth. The plaque and tartar buildup that forms on the teeth needs to be removed on a regular basis so that damaging effects do not occur. When plaque and tartar are left on the teeth, the gums will be affected and the tooth enamel will also begin to erode. Once the tooth enamel is affected, irreversible damage has occurred and the teeth will require even further treatment.

Maintaining the health of the teeth and mouth are vital to maintaining overall health. Practicing proper oral hygiene at home is only one part of the equation of oral health. Dental cleanings are crucial to prevent the buildup of plaque, tooth decay, and gum disease. Dental cleanings are also an opportunity for Dr. Wayne Suway to detect any dental problems early on and to prevent them from worsening.

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.
