Trauma to the Teeth

Restorative Dentist in Vinings GAIt doesn’t matter how old or young a person is, trauma to the teeth can occur at any age. Many people go through their entire adolescence and adult hood without a single cavity only to bite down on a piece of ice at age 53 and crack or break a tooth. Ouch! Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD has been practicing dentistry for over 30 years and has expertise in repairing teeth that have suffered damage. Teeth that are damaged and left untreated can easily provide an opening for cavities and decay. It is important that anyone who has suffered trauma to the teeth seek professional dental care as quickly as possible.

There are many times when people make the mistake of not having their teeth checked after trauma. Many times there is no initial apparent damage to the tooth; it may be a little sore, but it looks fine and it is not loose. However, this is often when many people mistakenly believe that all is well, when in fact damage to the roots has occurred. Teeth that become loose, are chipped or fractured, or that are completely knocked out show obvious damage, and people are quick to have these situations addressed. Yet, it is often those who think that everything is OK who end up with unforeseen trauma. Perhaps a month goes by and then a grayness of the tooth becomes obvious, and then you remember hitting your tooth a month back and telling yourself that all was fine.

Dr. Suway wants all of his patients to understand that even the simplest trauma to the teeth can cause major damage. That is why it is important that any time trauma or injury to the teeth occur that you have it checked out by your trusted dentist. Dr. Suway takes the time to meet with all of his patients and treat them on an individual basis. No two mouths are alike, and, therefore, should all be treated on a 1:1 basis. For all of your dental needs you can trust Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD in Vinings for the highest quality and most compassionate care. Call today to schedule your appointment and take the first step in achieving your healthiest, most beautiful 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.
