Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel work routinely with patients with dental prosthetics. Additionally, they can help patients who are dealing with certain problems or concerns with their dentures. If you are seeking solutions from a team that offers partial and full dentures services, call our facility today.

What are some common denture problems and solutions?

  • Problem: Difficulty eating or speaking.
  • Solution: It takes time to adjust to dentures, so be patient and practice saying common words and sounds until they become easier. Patients dealing with difficulties eating should start with softer foods and ensure they are inserting their dentures correctly.
  • Problem: Difficulty keeping dentures clean.
  • Solution: Use proper products to keep dentures clean and ask the dentist about any specific products they may recommend that are available over-the-counter or through the dental practice.
  • Problem: Dentures loosen over time.
  • Solution: Changes can occur to the gums and bone over time, so patients must visit Sherwood Dental when they are experiencing loose or ill-fitted dentures. This allows our team to provide proper adjustments to modify the dentures and ensure proper fit and function.
  • Problem: Irritation of the soft tissues in the mouth.
  • Solution: When dentures do not fit properly, they can cause unwanted irritation of the gums and other soft tissues in the mouth. If patients continue to feel pain and irritation that lasts more than a week, call and make an appointment to have the denture assessed.
  • Problem: Traveling with dentures.
  • Solution: It is critical to have the proper supplies for cleaning and care while on the road or travelling by plane. Make sure you always have the tools and instruments you need to keep your dentures clean while vacationing.
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.
