Dental Implants Near Marietta

Lost teeth do not need to ruin your appearance or impact your self-confidence in social interactions. Dental implants can restore your smile. They can give you back the ability to eat the foods you love and interact, laugh and talk with confidence. If you live in Marietta or East Cobb, you have one of the most experienced dental implant specialists available near you. Dr. Wayne Suway has been restoring smiles with dental implants for over 25 years. He can help you find the best option to give you back your complete smile.

Why are dental implants so popular? Essentially, dental implants are the closest replacements for natural teeth, giving patients in need of tooth restoration a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges that are secured by other teeth or adhesives, dental implants are surgically linked to the jaw bone, just like natural teeth. They will not move or slip out of place, which is a concern for those that wear dentures. The implant and tooth restorations are formed to fit perfectly and function like a natural tooth. In many cases, the new dental implant is aesthetically superior to the old teeth and can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene and dental care.

How Does the Dental Implant Procedure Work?

The first step in receiving dental implants is to be approved as a viable candidate for the procedure. If you have enough jaw bone density, healthy gums and no other medical concerns that could interfere with your procedure, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dr. Suway performs a thorough exam and will discuss your medical history and health to ensure that you are suitable for the procedure.

If you and Dr. Suway determine that dental implants are a good option for restoring your smile, you can begin looking at the options. Some people get implants to stabilize dentures and only need two or four posts inserted. For those replacing teeth, the look and fit of the new restorations are important. Dr. Suway will make a “mock-up” so you can visualize what your new smile will look like with dental implants. Together, you can discuss the best options for your dental implants.

Finally, the surgery will be completed. Some people may need bone grafting first to create the depth of bone needed, while others can go straight to inserting the titanium post into the jaw bone. Once the post is healed and secured, the permanent tooth restoration, which is usually a white crown, will be adhered. Some patients have their permanent restoration added the same day as the implant surgery. Most individuals will wear temporary tooth restorations until their surgical site heals and their new crowns come back from the dental lab.

Maintaining a New Smile with Dental Implants

One of the benefits of using dental implants for restoring lost teeth is the ease of caring for them. They are simply brushed and flossed like natural teeth, and you will need routine exams and cleanings to protect your oral health. Dr. Suway has helped hundreds of patients in the Marietta, East Cobb and greater Atlanta area restore their smiles with dental implants. He also helps them maintain their new smiles once they are restored.

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.

Dennis & Maria Liber

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.
