Options for replacing missing teeth in Oakville, ON


Replacing Missing Teeth in Oakville on Area

Oakville, ON patients in the community who are faced with replacing missing teeth within their smile, may feel slightly overwhelmed by the various options available to them. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental believe in offering a wide selection to ensure patients have the opportunity to choose the best option for their budget, lifestyle, and specific situation. At Sherwood Dental, our dentists encourage patients to learn about the most highly desirable options for replacing missing teeth, including:

Learn more about these options below:

  • Partial denture – the partial denture is a restoration used to replace one or more teeth in a dental arch. The partial denture is made of an acrylic and metal frame that snaps into place in the arch in the same way as a retainer does. It includes false teeth that slide into place where needed to fill the gaps and restore the function of the smile. Partial dentures are easy to remove and care for and are the most economical solution for many of our patients.
  • Full denture – a full denture is a denture made of acrylic to replace the entire arch of teeth. The full denture includes both false teeth and false gums. The denture sits on the ridge of the gums or can be held in place with natural suction or denture adhesives. In some situations, patients opt for the use of dental implants to solidify the placement of their dentures.
  • Implant-supported denture – the implant-supported denture is a full denture that utilizes about four dental implants along the dental arch to stabilize it. These dentures fit perfectly in place and are stronger and more durable than traditional full dentures alone. Patients feel more confident in their restorations as the implants provide the best placement possible.
  • Dental bridge – one or more teeth in a row can be replaced using a dental bridge. This ceramic restoration includes false teeth called pontics that are fused to dental crowns. The bridge uses adjacent teeth to support the restoration. Dental bridges are more permanent than a partial denture but not as expensive as alternatives such as dental implants.
  • Dental implant – dental implants are versatile posts placed in the bone of the jaw to replace one or more teeth. The implant can be covered with a dental crown to replace a single tooth or covered with a bridge to act as an adjacent tooth when one or both are missing. Alternatively, the implant can also be utilized with a full denture to provide patients with an implant-supported denture. Patients considering dental implants for their smiles need to undergo a full evaluation to ensure they have sufficient bone for successful placement.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

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!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

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.
