Sherwood Dental....

We are open for business! Welcome Back!!!

We have missed seeing the smiling faces of our patients for what has felt like forever. The decision back in March to close Sherwood Dental due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as unprecedented as it was, was not taken lightly and was absolutely necessary for the safety of our team, our patients, and the community around us.

Our doctors, hygienists, assistants and administration team are very proud of how Sherwood Dental's preventative and minimally invasive philosophies of dental treatment and oral healthcare have kept so many of you free from emergency or urgent need while we have been unable to see patients in person.

Having gone above and beyond the most current guidelines for dental offices in Ontario (RCDSO) by implementing extra enhanced measures and aerosol management equipment, Sherwood Dental is open and ready to provide the complete level of care that our patients have been accustomed to for so many years.

Our focus at Sherwood Dental has always been one of striving to exceed our patients' expectations. As such, we have gone to great lengths and meticulous planning to assure that our patients and our team are in an environment that keeps everyone safe and healthy at all times. From the moment that you enter our office, during the time of your treatment, and until the moment that you leave, our enhanced protocols and specialized equipment will be in place for your added protection.

We are happy and excited again to be doing what we love to everyone with their oral healthcare needs and enjoy the time that we get to spend with all of our wonderful patients.

Looking forward to seeing your smiles really soon.

Stay well and healthy,
Dr. Gaines and your Sherwood Dental Team

Are teeth implant services available in Oakville, Ontario?


Are Teeth Implant Services Available in Oakville, Ontario Area?

Patients looking for a dental implants dentist in Oakville, Ontario will not have to look far if they contact the providers at Sherwood Dental! Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel are here to help patients with a wide range of dental services under one roof. While many dentists only provide general dentistry services, our team also offers teeth implants services, including both the placement and restoration of dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

Many patients who struggle with tooth loss may hear about dental implants but may not fully understand what they are and how they work. Dental implants are best described by Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel as tooth root replacements. They are fabricated using titanium, which is strong, long-lasting, and biocompatible with the human body. This small post is placed during a specific surgery into the bone of the patient’s jaw to help patients replace one, several, or all the teeth in the smile.

How is a dental implant used?

Dental implants can be used in many ways thanks to their versatility. For patients missing a single tooth, a dental implant can be placed where the tooth once was and restored over the abutment with a dental crown. Dental crowns are restorations made of porcelain that look like natural teeth and can restore the function and beauty of the smile after tooth loss. Dental implants may also be covered with dental bridges, providing the foundation on one or both sides of the space left behind when adjacent teeth are not available. And for patients who have lost all their teeth, our team might recommend the benefits of implant-retained dentures. These are full dentures that replace the entire arch of teeth. The dentures are made to fit with dental implants placed along the arch to stabilize them and allow them to function better than traditional dentures with denture adhesives.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

Are dental implants right for me?

Many patients love the idea of dental implants but are not sure if they are appropriate candidates. The best candidates for implants are individuals who have sufficient bone in the jaw to support the placement and retention of the implant. If patients have lost bone due to bone resorption, they can consider the advantages of undergoing bone grafting to repair this bone loss and prepare the area for the placement of implants in the future.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

If you are considering implants for replacing missing teeth, we welcome you to book an appointment with our staff. We are conveniently located in Oakville, Ontario at 2892 South Sheridan Way and encourage patients to book an appointment with our team by calling 844-951-8855.

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.
