Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Treatment in Marietta GADo you wake repeatedly during the night? Do you feel tired during the day despite getting a full seven to eight hours of sleep? Do you snore? If you answered, “yes,” to any of these questions, it is time to call your dentist. Sleep apnea is a condition in which a person’s breathing is paused as a result of the blockage of the pharyngeal airway. A pause in breathing means that the body, especially major organs like the brain and heart, are not receiving adequate and consistent oxygen repeatedly. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD understands that sleep apnea poses health risks and lessens a person’s quality of life. He offers specific treatment for his patients that suffer from sleep apnea so that they can enjoy a full night’s sleep and eliminate future health problems.

The word “apnea” is defined as the temporary cessation of breathing. While not everyone who snores has sleep apnea, snoring is a common indicator for many. Other indicators include:

• Restless sleep
• Interrupted sleep
• Waking suddenly
• Waking with a gasp for air, or waking with a cough
• Sleepiness throughout the day despite receiving a full night’s sleep
• Awakening with a dry mouth or sore throat
• Moring headache
• Insomnia
• Attention problems

If you have any of these symptoms, it is time to have your sleep evaluated. Dr. Wayne Suway offers custom oral appliances designed specifically for patients with sleep apnea. These appliances are similar to a mouth guard, but they are designed to keep the airway open. Worn only at night, they can eliminate snoring and sleep apnea, allowing for a full, successful night’s rest.

If you think that you may be suffering from sleep apnea, contact the dental practice of Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD. With over 30 years of dental experience, he is the trusted name in Marietta, Vinings, and surrounding areas as the reputable source for comprehensive dental care. Dr. Suway can relieve your sleep apnea symptoms and help you receive a better night’s sleep.

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.
