Treatments available at Cuddy Dentists

Cosmetic

A wide variety of unsightly and unhealthy dental conditions can be corrected including chipped teeth, cracked teeth, misshapen teeth, misaligned teeth and discoloured teeth. Veneers are commonly used in correcting some of the above conditions. The result is an amazing and dramatic improvement in your smile. 

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.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Both routine extractions and wisdom tooth extractions can be carried out at Frank Cuddy & Associates Dental Surgery, as we have an Oral Surgeon available as well as our general dentists. This means you will not need to be referred to any other surgery or you will not have to wait a long time to have a wisdom tooth removed.

We provide written instructions for each patient following an extraction. The receptionist will give you instructions  before you leave the waiting room.

However, the following will give you an idea what to expect afterwards

What to expect afterwards

There may be will be some bleeding and your dentist may put in stitches. After the extraction, you will be given a piece of soft padding to bite on to stop the bleeding. It's best not to rinse out your mouth or do any exercise for the first few hours after the extraction. This is because any blood clot that may have formed could be disturbed and the bleeding could start again

After the blood clot forms, it's important to protect it, especially for the next 24 hours.

Don’t  smoke and chew tobacco.

Don’t drinking alcohol.

Don’t  suck through a straw.

Don't rinse your mouth vigorously.

Don’t  clean the teeth next to the extraction site.

These activities could dislodge the clot and slow down healing.

After the first few hours, it can be helpful to gently rinse out your mouth with salt water (half a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water) a few times a day. You can begin eating normally the next day, or if not by then, as soon as it's comfortable. Continue to rinse your mouth with warm salt water.

If you experience bleeding when you go home, gently bite on a piece of soft padding to stop the bleeding. Sit quietly do not rinse out your mouth or do not do any exercise. If the bleeding persists (i.e. it doesn't stop within 30 minutes) contact Frank Cuddy & Associates Dental Surgery for advice.
