Oakville dental practice offers preventative dental care and hygiene services


Dental Hygiene Service in Oakville Area

Taking good care of the smile requires more than just brushing and flossing. Your dentist is here to help you in achieving and maintaining a healthy smile. Dental hygiene, preventative dental care, and routine visits to the dentist are encouraged to ensure the teeth and gums are not impacted by periodontal disease or dental decay. With the right services in place and a team that you trust, you can enjoy the smile of your dreams!

What preventative services are available?

Oakville, Ontario patients who want to maintain a healthy smile, will want to visit a dentist regularly for evaluations and cleanings. Additionally, patients might need other services as well, depending on what problems arise with time. Drs. Stephen Gaines and Arti Patel of Sherwood Dental provide a selection of treatment options for patients to choose from. Below are just a few of the dental care services available at the office:

  • Cleanings – professional dental cleanings can remove plaque, tartar, and calculus from the soft tissues and teeth. Patients should have a cleaning performed by a dental hygienist at least twice a year.
  • Examinations – a physical examination of the teeth is done during routine visits, allowing the dentist to evaluate the health of the smile and ensure dental restorations are strong and functioning as desired.
  • Oral cancer screenings – oral cancer is just as serious as any other type of cancer, which is why we routinely screen patients to look for any indication of possible cancerous cells on the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • X-rays – sometimes, problems exist below the gumline or inside of teeth and need to be visualized with dental x-rays. These images are used for diagnostic and planning purposes.
  • Education – in addition to providing the above options for new and established patients, our team will also educate patients on how to improve their oral health. They can advise patients on how to brush and floss properly or make recommendations regarding toothpaste, toothbrushes, and other dental care products and supplies.
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.
