Dental Implants Save Face

Reproducing the natural look, normal feel and function of your lost teeth may seem difficult to achieve. At Suwanee Dental Care, many people have come to us because they sensed from their own dentists that this was the case. What they were pleased to find out was that there are good alternatives for almost every type of situation that can be successful.
Dental implants are ideal for replacing missing teeth that have been lost due to dental caries or to periodontal disease. In many cases, the bone can be regenerated and an implant placed in its ideal location to maintain the health and beauty of the mouth. The problem with missing teeth is that it can be detrimental to your body’s overall general health as well as to the structures inside your mouth. It’s a well known fact that tooth loss leads to being a dental cripple with one tenth the biting power and ten times the facial wrinkles compared to people who have their own teeth….or dental implants. In essence, dental implants can help you "save face"!
Just as atrophy occurs with muscle disuse, so atrophy occurs in the jaw bones as teeth are lost. Excessive atrophy leads to excessive aging and weakness of the jaw and facial muscles. One of our goals at Suwanee Dental Care is to educate the patients we have to not lose teeth, to not allow missing teeth to remain in that detrimental state for long and to replace those that are missing with the
best available option, bone-saving and bone-stimulating dental implants (as opposed to dental bridges, partial or full dentures). While those options are better than nothing (toothlessness), they pale in comparison to dental implants for longevity, function, and, most of all, the ability to preserve bone. For those who are missing teeth, dental implants are the absolute superior way to replace them. There is no bridge that is as good as a good dental implant for restoring a single tooth. The successful dental implant, over a lifetime, will be much less expensive to place and maintain than the average dental bridge or partial denture, too.

Many people will look at the initially higher cost of a dental implant, abutment and crown on that implant and consider it too expensive compared to a dental bridge or partial denture. This is actually shortsighte
d because the complications and remakes of traditional bridges and partials are much higher over time. And, when bridges and partial dentures have to be remade every ten years or so, and when the implant is still functional after the same time span, the cost of the implant begins to look like a total bargain.
Dental implants have been around for over 50 years as a common part of the dental list of options for patients. While not too many dentists placed them in the early days and many implant systems have been come and gone, what is now used in dental implants by the highly trained dentists such as those at Suwanee Dental Care, are extremely reliable and have a highly favorable track record. Because of this fact, dental implants as an option for our patients, have risen from the bottom of the list in 1975 to the top of the list of options in 2011. We place them confidently and often and can say that they are well tolerated and enjoyed by hundreds of our patients. In fact you have probably met several of our team who have dental implants in their own mouths…Angie our treatment coordinator and myself! I had a dental implant placed to replace a missing permanent tooth in 1986 and it’s as good today as it was back then…perfect in form, function and comfort to this very day.

Cumming Dentists: Do You Have The Right Toothbrush?

The Right Toothbrush For Your


Do we always put alot of thought into choosing what kind of toothbrush we use. Well, as a general rule, I would have to say no. Most people are mainly interested in the color of toothbrush they purchase.


Many family's have a system where every member has a color that has somehow been assigned to them. This way no one uses the wrong toothbrush. This is great, but when picking out our toothbrush, we need to start thinking about what we are getting it for.


The job of a toothbrush is to reach and clean most areas of the teeth. The bristles of a toothbrush are very important when deciding on which one is the best for you. Soft bristled toothbrushes should be chosen as opposed to hard bristles which tend to cause gingival recession. Soft bristles are just more flexible and clean beneath the gingival margin without causing damage to your gums. We should also notice the size of the head of the toothbrush.


The head should be small enough to get to the hard to reach areas of the teeth. We should replace our toothbrush every 3 months or when the bristles start to wear. You should also change your toothbrush after a cold, flu, sore throat, or mouth infection. Maybe this information will help you and the health of your mouth the next time you purchase a toothbrush.

Cumming Dentists: Stress And Your Dental Health

Can Stress Affect Your Dental Health?


Are you battling stress in your life?


These days it is more like who doesn't have some sort of stress in their life. It seems that there just aren't enough hours in the day to do all that we "think" we need to get done. A recent stress in America Survey found that nearly 40 percent of adults experience wakefulness at night because of stress. Stress can have many different side affects on our bodies.


It can also have an impact on our dental health. One common side affect of stress is teeth grinding. Some people grind their teeth at night during their sleep and not even realize they are. This can cause headaches, sore jaws, or pain when biting.


Making small changes in your lifestyle can reduce stress levels. Eating healthier would be a great place to start. Until your stress becomes more managable, there is an appliance that can help with your teeth grinding. A mouth guard. It will act as a cushion for teeth when you are grinding. This will take the pressure off of your teeth which is causing your discomfort. The dentists here at Suwanee Dental Care can evaluate and determine if teeth grinding maybe the cause of your pain and discomfort. Come in today and get on your way to feeling better.

Charity is Important

A bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in November would make it easier for charitable programs such as Donated Dental Services (DDS) to provide necessary dental care to low-income children and adults with serious medical conditions.

The care would be provided by volunteer dentists at no cost to patients with medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer, autoimmune disease, and kidney disease or who need heart or joint replacements or transplants.

During 2011, Dental Lifeline Network served 13,443 people through its three humanitarian programs: DDS, Dental HouseCalls, and Bridge/Campaign of Concern. Through DDS, 7,495 people received $21.6 million in donated dental treatment and laboratories donated nearly $2 million in fabrications.

Our doctors at Suwanee Dental Care try to give back to the community as much as possible with time given at Hebron Dental Clinic, our African missions, and through other charitable organizations in our local community like food banks and Toys for Tots. It is always a good time to give back to our community's brothers and sisters.
