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

Dentures problems and solutions with an Oakville, ON area provider


Dentures Problems and Solutions at Sherwood Dental in Oakville, ON Area

If you are looking for a dentist “near me” in the Oakville, Ontario, area who offers fabrication, placement, and solutions for dentures, connect with our team at Sherwood Dental. Drs. 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.
