Implant dentistry does a lot for Oakville, ON patients needing tooth replacement

Historically, to replace missing teeth meant to replace the crown structure that is needed for chewing. Since then, implant dentistry has become the new norm. It is not the implants themselves that replace the missing teeth of our Oakville, ON patients; these fixtures, however, are vital to long-term results.

Implants act as replacement roots, which sets the stage for stable chewing and speaking, comfortable speech, and aesthetic confidence. Statistics also demonstrate a high degree of success, which stems from several important benefits:
  • While one aspect of smile restoration is to preserve natural appearance, there is an important functional factor tied to this. When we smile, we want to show healthy-looking teeth. Additionally, however, teeth are supportive to facial contours. Without them, the distance between the chin and the nose decreases, and the lips sink inward as underlying bone structure breaks down. Implants stimulate healthy bone regeneration, which supports lips and cheeks.
  • Stable teeth across the upper and lower arches are necessary for chewing. If there is space from a missing tooth, it is likely that chewing will mostly occur on the opposite side of the mouth. Depending on the degree of tooth loss, chewing may actually become difficult, which can affect dietary choices. Lastly, bone loss occurs beneath the empty space, no matter how big or small it is. When optimal stability is reinstated with the appropriate number of implants, chewing is successfully restored.
By using implants strategically, we can help you replace multiple teeth, even all of your teeth, just as easily as we could help you replace one. Drs. Eisner and Gaines have both maintained their love for learning, and have expanded their skills into implant dentistry in order to help patients experience the greatest functionality after tooth loss.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
