Dental Cleaning at Sherwood Dental in Oakville, ON Area

Taking care of the teeth with daily brushing and flossing is just part of a good oral health routine. It is still important for patients to visit their Oakville, Ontario dentist regularly for dental cleanings and routine treatments. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental are here to help patients stay on track with good hygiene habits.

Why are dental cleanings important?

Just like other dental treatments, dental cleanings are vital to ensuring patients have plaque, tartar, calculus, and bacteria removed from the mouth. Brushing after every meal and flossing at least once a day can make a dramatic impact, but sometimes a deep cleaning is necessary to reach those hard-to-reach areas of the mouth that patients might be missing when taking care of the smile. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel encourage patients to not only book a dental cleaning every six months but schedule a routine examination at the same time. While our dental hygienists at Sherwood Dental perform the deep cleaning, they can make a note of any concerns within the smile and pass this information onto the dentist. Our team works together to ensure patients have healthy smiles, and cleaning and examinations are a big part of this process.

How can I take care of my smile between dental visits?

Patients who want to improve and maintain oral health should:

  • Brush their teeth after each meal with a fluoride toothpaste and soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Floss at least once a day to remove food particles between teeth
  • Maintain routine dental visits every six months
  • Call their dentist if any changes occur within the smile, including swelling, bleeding, or pain
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.
