Why Brushing is So Important

Dentists in Marietta GAPerhaps it is late into the night and all you want to do is crash on to your pillow without brushing your teeth. Before you allow yourself to skip out on this chore, let’s discuss why brushing is so important. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD has been providing quality dental care for over 30 years to his patients in the Atlanta, Vinings and Marietta area, and he will tell anyone that a person’s oral hygiene is the number one factor in his or her oral health.

Brushing the teeth regularly not only prevents bad breath and makes the teeth whiter; it also helps to prevent tooth decay. What many people may not know is that tooth decay has direct links to heart attacks and strokes, making it vital that regular tooth brushing be done. Bacteria naturally grow in the mouth, and when it is not removed on a regular basis, it can cause infections. Abscessed teeth that become infected can easily send the infection in the blood stream directly to the heart, lungs, and even the brain. Brushing reduces the number of bacteria in the mouth and removes plaque that builds up on the teeth.

Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD wants to partner with you to improve your brushing technique in order to keep your entire mouth as healthy as possible. Dr. Suway is a dedicated specialist who is able to clean and examine the teeth for signs of bacterial infections and other oral health problems that can lead to serious overall health issues. Before you skip out on your nightly routine of brushing (and hopefully flossing, too), understand that how you care for your mouth affects how you care for your entire body. Dr. Suway understands this relationship and wants to help you have a healthy smile.

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.
