Welcome back to Sherway Dentistry.

We're thrilled to share good news with you! We were given the go ahead by regulatory authorities allowing us to resume seeing patients at the office for all dental appointments. This includes fillings, crowns, hygiene, orthodontics, Invisalign, cosmetic procedures, dentures, etc.

We've made significant changes to how we manage patient flow and our office protocols for patient treatment - all with the sole purpose of ensuring you and your dental team remain safe by minimizing the risk of spreading the virus. These changes include physical barriers, allowing one person in the waiting room at a time, closed treatment rooms when required, air purifiers, enhanced PPE for patients and staff, and more.

There are new guidelines for patients as well. These include pre-screening before your appointment, hand hygiene, wearing a mask, and maintaining physical distancing. Details will be shared with you before your visit and also on our new COVID/Patient Safety page on our website.

We're excited about the changes to make your visit as safe and convenient as possible.

Our team is contacting all patients to reschedule missed appointments. If you need an appointment immediately, kindly contact the office at 416.639.2546, and we'll get you in as soon as possible. As you can imagine, we have a backlog of cancelled appointments from mid-March and your continued patience and understanding is truly appreciated as we get back and into a new routine at the clinic.


Thank-you for your patience, understanding, and words of support during the closure. We can't wait to see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Dr Tuli, Dr Pavelic, Dr Haroun, Cori, and the rest of the team at Sherway Dentistry

Dental implants for functional, natural-looking new teeth in Etobicoke, ON

New Teeth Implants at Sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke ON Area
In an ideal world, we would keep each one of our natural teeth for our whole lifetime—however, accidents and life happen! Tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons ranging from decay to injuries, but that doesn’t mean you need to live with one or more missing teeth in your smile. At Sherway Dentistry in Etobicoke, ON, we provide a variety of tooth replacement options to restore the appearance and function of lost teeth. Among these, dental implants work in a way that is most similar to your natural teeth and are often the top choice for new teeth among patients and dentists alike.

How dental implants work

A natural tooth has two main components: the crown, which is the part you see above the gum line, and the root, which keeps the tooth anchored firmly in your jaw bone. What makes dental implants unique is that they replace the root of the missing tooth, whereas other types of dental restorations only replace the crown portion of the tooth. After being surgically placed in your jaw, the implant fuses together with the bone in a process called osseointegration to form a strong, stable foundation for your new tooth/teeth (a dental crown, bridge, or denture). In addition, dental implants:
  • Do not require alteration of healthy neighboring teeth to be placed
  • Prevent the jaw bone deterioration over time that typically occurs with tooth loss
  • Restore the function of your missing teeth, helping you eat, speak, and smile with confidence again
  • Can last for the rest of your life if you take good care of your teeth and gums

Am I a good candidate?

Dental implants are incredibly versatile, and can be used in a number of different tooth loss scenarios:
  • To replace a single missing tooth
  • To anchor a dental bridge in place (rather than crowns on the neighboring teeth)
  • To support a full denture with as few as four dental implants that are strategically placed in the dental arch
Because dental implant treatment relies upon the implant fusing with your jaw bone, there must be sufficient volume and density of bone for the treatment to be a success. During your evaluation and consultation, our dental team will take images of your bone structure to determine whether a procedure called bone grafting is necessary prior to your dental implant surgery to help increase the underlying bone structure.

With you every step of the way

Our dental team is here to help you regain the appearance, function, and health of your smile after tooth loss. We take pride in completing every step of your dental implant treatment right here in our office – from the planning stages through your follow-up care. We use effective dental anesthetics and nitrous oxide to keep you comfortable during your implant surgery and use the latest dental technologies and materials to craft a natural-looking, durable restoration for your smile.
