Restorative

There are many different types of restorative treatments available from:

Bridges - Crowns - Dentures.

Here at Cuddy Dentists we provide all of these services under one roof. 

Preventative

Dental hygiene treatment includes professionally cleaning the teeth for the patient. This is usually called scaling and polishing. However, perhaps our most important role is showing the patient the best way to keep the teeth free of plaque.

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury.  This may eventually lead to an abscess.

If root canal treatment (RCT) is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. 

What is root canal treatment?(RCT) 

Root canal treatment is a sequence of treatment for the pulp of a tooth whose end result is the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.

The procedure is carried out in the Dental Surgery under local anaesthetic, it is nothing to worry about and it is  relatively painless. The dentists  at Frank Cuddy & Associates Dental Surgery have introduced a new type of local anaesthetic to ensure the area is completely numb before we commence the  root canal treatment, it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling done. 

TMJ Disorders or /TMJ Syndrome

TMJ is short for Temporomandibular joint.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Disorders are relatively common and are generally associated with a misaligned bite, bruxism (teeth grinding), and other factors that  put stress on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). TMJ disorders can be the source of a variety of painful symptoms, from headaches to ear and neck pain.  Ear pain associated with the swelling of proximal tissue is a symptom of temporomandibular joint disorder.

Signs and symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder vary in their presentation and can be very complex, but are often simple. On average the symptoms will involve more than one of the numerous TMJ components: muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, bones, connective tissue, and the teeth.

It is important to contact your dentist if you think you are suffering from TMJ Disorders as left unattended it can develop into more serious problems.

Your dentist may carry out some relatively simple procedures that may bring about considerable relief, for example, Restoration of the occlusal surfaces of the teeth.  If the occlusal surfaces of the teeth or the supporting structures have been damaged due to dental neglect, periodontal diseases or trauma, the proper occlusion should be restored.

The dentists at Frank Cuddy and Associates dental surgery have found that

Occlusal restoration reduces TMJ symptoms for some patients.

The provision  of splints (also called night guards or mouth guards) reduce night time clenching in some patients.
