Minimally invasive root canals

Root Canal Therapy Oakville - Minimally invasive root canals

Dr. Stephen Gaines and the staff of Sherwood Dental in Oakville carry out quality dental care services with the intent of preserving and improving a patient’s oral health. We understand that good preventative care is effective in decreasing the need for restorative services. Sometimes despite even the most pristine care, situations arise which require more complex procedures to restore patient health.

One sometimes dreaded procedure in the mind of many patients is a root canal. A root canal is necessary when a tooth becomes damaged to the point that the interior of the tooth, the pulp (the nerve), becomes inflamed or infected. This may occur as a result of severe decay, a cracked or broken tooth, or due to external trauma. Failure to treat an affected tooth can lead to severe pain for a patient, and eventually result in bone damage and loss of the tooth. In order to preserve the original structure of a tooth, yet correct the problem that exists, a patient can undergo a root canal.

I've always dreaded going to the dentist. That is until I was introduced to Sherwood Dental. Aside from the friendly service all around, they truly take pride in their quality of work. Dr. Gaines has a passion dentistry and it is evident. I didn't think it was possible, but I've finally found a dentist I don't dread going.

The Pulp is cleaned out and then the root canals (channels) smoothed. The infection, or abscess, is treated as necessary to eliminate any harmful bacteria. This may involve a healing period, in which the tooth is temporarily closed off to ensure effective results. Once the area is cleared, the patient returns to have the tooth filled and sealed to prevent any further invasion from bacteria. The final touch, in most cases, is the placement of a crown, which is permanently secured to provide added strength and function.

Root Canal Therapy Oakville - 5 Stars By Jenn
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!

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.
