Preventative Hygiene

Preventive Dentistry Oakville - Preventative Hygiene

As dental professionals, we understand the role that preventative care plays in protecting the health of teeth and gums. Sometimes, convincing patients of that is a bit more difficult. Patients can contribute to their oral health by making healthy food choices, and by maintaining proper oral hygiene at home, including brushing and flossing. Also vital to oral health is regularly-scheduled professional dental visits. This provides an opportunity for cleaning where brushing and flossing may have missed, as well as examination by trained professionals. This aspect can be invaluable for catching developing problems early and resolving them before they become more severe.

Sherwood Dental cares for patients with products and services designed to preserve their good health. This will decrease the need for many restorative and perhaps even cosmetic dental services in the future. Despite the best of care, concerns can and do still present themselves; but with our prompt and attentive care, we will have you back to yourself, quickly and on the most minimally invasive way possible. By visiting us on a regular basis and not waiting for an emergency to arise, these instances should be few and far between.

How to Brush

How to Brush

Preventative hygiene delivers benefits to teeth and gums by preserving healthy oral structure, and decreasing risk factors for other conditions and diseases throughout the body. Professional cleanings is the only way to remove harmful tartar that can accumulate under and along the gum line that would ultimately lead to gum disease, as well as other complications. Examinations allow us to detect and address wear, cracks, or decay before they progress to a painful condition.

Dentists of my past have made it miserable to get my teeth cleaned so because of that my dental Hygiene suffered until I went to Sherwood Dental. They fixed me up and are a delight to go back to every time. Great staff, great atmosphere, honest and to the point, very professional I highly recommend.

This aids in accurate diagnosis and exposes patients to less radiation than traditional methods. These digital images can be enhanced for greater detail and stored easily for further assessments.

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.
