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

Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea Therapy Oakville - Sleep Apnea

Snoring can be a bothersome habit for the sufferer, sleeping partners, and even housemates. Sometimes snoring is actually a sign of a more serious condition known as sleep apnea. OSA or obstructive sleep apnea is one form of this disorder that is often ignored, as it is believed to be only a snoring problem. If it is OSA, however, the patient will be at a higher risk for many associated health conditions.

Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea may sound very similar at first, but OSA is marked by periods in which breathing is interrupted by airway blockage. This means that while snoring noises are heard, there will be moments of silence when the person is actually not breathing. Warning signs for this condition include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Stirring during sleep
  • Sound of gasping for air or choking
  • Excessive sleepiness during the day
  • Lack of concentration
  • Dry or sore throat upon waking
  • Moodiness and irritability

Dr. Stephen Gaines of Sherwood Dental in Oakville offers treatment solutions for OSA sufferers. Effective treatment depends on severity, but with the same purpose – to restore regular breathing during sleep. Some lifestyle changes may help reduce the occurrence of sleep apnea. Some patients may experience improvement by limiting alcohol and sleep medications. Overweight patients are more likely to experience OSA, and so losing any amount of weight may help, as well. Some people are helped by simply changing their sleeping position. Others may find some relief with nasal strips or nasal sprays to help open airways for easier breathing.

For patients who need a little more help, we may suggest a special mouth appliance to be worn when sleeping. It works by adjusting the jaw and tongue position to provide a clear airway.

If you or a family member suffer from the effects of OSA, contact our office to schedule an appointment.

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.
