Dental Implants Near Smyrna

Restoring your smile when you have missing teeth can change your life for the better. Dental implants are the most natural option for replacing teeth or to stabilize other dental restorations like dentures or bridges. Dr. Wayne Suway offers customized dental implants for our patients that qualify for the procedure, restoring beautiful smiles in Smyrna, Sandy Springs and the surrounding area. If you are wondering if dental implants could be an option for replacing your missing or damaged teeth, our dental team may be able to help.

Dental implants are structured to resemble natural teeth. The “root” of the dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically secured in the jaw bone. Once the surgical site heals and the post adheres to the bone in the jaw, a permanent tooth restoration can be attached to the post, creating a new tooth. A properly inserted dental implant will look and function like a natural tooth, staying permanently in place and matching your smile.

Dr. Wayne Suway has been implementing dental implants for over 25 years and is one of the leading dentists in the Atlanta area to offer this procedure. He works diligently with our patients to find the best restoration solutions, using dental implants whenever possible and creating a customized design that looks natural. Dr. Suway is highly respected as a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantology and has the experience and expertise you want when exploring restorative dentistry options.

Advantages of Dental Implants

While dentures and bridges can replace missing teeth, they do not have many of the advantages of dental implants. For those that are good candidates for dental implants, they can effectively replace lost teeth with a new, perfectly formed restoration. Some of the advantages include:

  • Customized individual teeth to blend with your smile
  • Functional for chewing and talking without slipping
  • Implants can help minimize bone loss in the jaw
  • Implants can offer stabilization for dentures
  • No extra maintenance is required
  • Stays permanently in place

There are no other dental restoration options that quite match the beauty and function of dental implants, making them the ideal solution for one or more missing teeth. Once secured in place, you can forget that these restorations are not your natural teeth. When placed by an experienced professional like Dr. Suway, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants can give you back your complete smile for functionality, improved appearance and self-confidence.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, not everyone who has missing teeth is a suitable candidate for dental implants, but more and more people are able to receive these dental restorations. Some of the factors that Dr. Suway will consider when vetting a patient for dental implants include:

  • Amount of bone density in the jaw
  • Health of the gum tissue
  • Medical history and current medical issues
  • Overall health

In the past, some patients were disqualified for dental implants due to bone loss, but that is no longer always the case. Bone grafting can be an option to restore enough bone to complete the procedure in some patients. So, even if you have been denied dental implants in the past, it is still worth a visit to consult with Dr. Suway to see if you could be a candidate for dental implants.

If you live in the Smyrna area and want to learn more about dental implants, schedule a consultation and exam with Dr. Suway at our office in Atlanta. You may be a viable candidate to receive customized dental implants to improve and restore your smile. Contact us today to begin the journey to finding the best restoration option to give you back your complete 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.

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.
