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

Finding Solutions to Denture Problems in Oakville


Finding Solutions to Denture Problems in Oakville Area

Dentures have long been an excellent solution for individuals who are dealing with unhealthy or missing teeth. Dentures are an easy, non-invasive way to replace missing teeth and reclaim a beautiful smile. If you are having issues with your dentures, we can help at Sherwood Dental serving Oakville, ON. Keep reading to learn more about denture problems and solutions.

Eating Problems

When you first get dentures, you may find that eating is a little bit difficult. You are basically learning a new skill, eating with dentures, and it might take you a while to get the hang of it. It is important to remember that eating with dentures will feel different than eating with natural teeth. If you experience your dentures slipping out of place while you are eating, try chewing your food evenly on both sides of your mouth. This can help.

Another issue people face while eating with dentures is that some foods can become stuck under dentures and cause discomfort. While you are learning to eat with dentures, stick to soft foods that are easy to chew. With time and practice, you will eventually be able to eat most of the foods you enjoyed with your natural teeth.

Speaking Problems

Another issue people deal with is learning to speak with dentures; again, this will take some time and practice. Your teeth are actually a very important part of your speech. People often do not realize how much they use their teeth to form words. One way you can help yourself is by practicing each day in front of a mirror. This way, you can make mistakes and learn how to form words more clearly without the added pressure of trying to communicate with someone.
We are here to help you get the perfect smile.

Denture Problems and Solutions in Oakville

Although the two issues listed above are considered common problems with dentures, sometimes more serious issues arise. Some more serious issues could include ill-fitting dentures, which cause sores or pain. If your dentures are not fitted properly, it can cause pain, discomfort and even increase your chances of infections in the mouth. This is a serious issue that should be seen by your dentist.

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.
