If you're a patient that's having a hard time chewing, the first thing we really need to do is find out why. There are multiple things that can cause pain when you chew from your joint, to your gums, to your teeth, but it must start with an examination, and then we prioritize from there and hopefully, after we've considered all your options, we can have you chewing again.
Get Your Smile – And Your Diet – Back With Restorative Dentistry
Chewing difficulties can be caused by a number of factors. But no matter the problem, we have a solution. Our hands-on approach means a custom solution to what’s keeping you from your favorite foods!
- Missing Teeth – This may cause you to put unnecessary stress on other parts of your mouth, or you may find that chewing hurts your exposed gum tissue. Let us replace your missing teeth with dental implants, bridges, or dentures.
- Decayed Teeth – Tooth decay can wreak havoc on the nerves in your teeth. Any sort of pressure or temperature changes from eating might make it worse. If you have an infected or decayed tooth, we can repair the damage with a dental filling or root canal.
- Loose Dentures – If your dentures don’t fit properly, they’re going to slip when you eat. That reduces the force of your bite, making it difficult to eat anything tough or crunchy. If your dentures are loose, we can custom-fit a new set just for your mouth.
- Broken Teeth – As with decayed teeth, broken teeth affect your ability to chew because of the stress placed on your tooth’s nerves. We can repair a broken tooth by covering it with a natural-looking, sturdy dental crown.
