Dentist in Oakville, ON offers quality dental implants to replace a missing tooth


Quality Dental Implants at Sherwood Dental in Oakville ON Area

Before dental implants were invented, partial and full dentures were the only method of replacing a missing tooth or several missing teeth. However, dental implants are now one of the gold standards in tooth replacement. Oakville, Ontario area patients who are seeking a quality solution to missing teeth can speak with a dental implant dentist “near me” in the area about the advantages of this restoration available with our team at Sherwood Dental.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a synthetic, manmade post that is often fabricated using titanium, a metal that is biocompatible with the body. This post is then placed into the jawbone where a previous tooth resided. This restoration anchors itself to the jawbone to ensure a strong and durable foundation for a tooth root replacement. Then, the dentist will restore the abutment of the dental implant with a crown, bridge, or denture.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel find that many patients choose dental implants for a variety of reasons, as they can be quite advantageous when compared to alternative options. Dental implants:

  • Look and function just like natural teeth
  • Are biocompatible with the bone of the body
  • Maintain natural bone structure and reduce the risk of bone resorption (jawbone loss)
  • Provide a strong and sturdy foundation for crowns, bridges, and dentures
  • Eliminate the need for removable partial dentures Last a lifetime when properly maintained
  • Are a permanent solution
  • Are easy to care for, and are treated just like existing natural teeth

We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Patients considering dental implants should take note that individuals with sufficient jawbone are the best candidate for this procedure. This is because the implant requires bone to attach itself and stimulate the growth of bone around it during a process called osseointegration. In some instances, patients without enough bone can undergo a bone grafting procedure to build up the jawbone and prepare for dental implants in the future.

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.
