Reasons You May Be Anxious About the Dentist

Female Patient Asleep in Dentist Chair Atlanta GAIt is not uncommon for patients to dread an upcoming dental visit, but many also feel notable anxiety or fear about seeing the dentist. Unfortunately, professional dental care is non-negotiable if you want to retain a healthy and lasting smile. That’s why it is important to recognize the source of your anxiety and let a dentist create a comfortable and relaxed experience for you. Modern dentistry offers a number of techniques to help patients feel at ease while in the dental chair, including sedation dentistry, less invasive treatments, advanced technology and comfort amenities that make you feel like you are at home instead of a sterile, uptight dental office.

Dental Phobia

Vinings GA Sedation DentistryVisiting the dentist on a regular basis is one of the most important things that you can do for your entire health. The health of your mouth is a huge indication of your overall health; therefore, making your oral health a priority is necessary for living a health life. However, millions of people in America alone refuse to visit the dentist out of fear of what will happen at the dentist. Dental phobia is a true fear that allows the stress, anxiety, and/or panic of dental visits and treatments to keep them from stepping foot inside the dentist’s office. If dental phobia affects you, your child, or a family member and is keeping you from receiving he dental care that you need, please contact Dr. Wayne G. Suway today.

While it is true that many years ago people often had to suffer through dental treatments, we no longer live in the Dark Ages. Much advancement has been made in dentistry, and more advancement is made each year, to allow patients to experience a pleasant dental experience. Many adults allow a traumatic memory from childhood to keep them from visiting the dentist as an adult. Others are leery of visiting the dentist because they know they have not been in a few years and they worry that they have let their problems get “too far gone.” And yet others have a sensitive gag reflex that makes them anxious about how they will react during a simple teeth cleaning procedure.

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.

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.
