When you notice a change with your chewing comfort or ease with which you chew, it’s important to remember this is no small issue. Your ability to receive the nourishment you need on a daily basis relies primarily on your ability to eat food! When you cannot break it down comfortably or effectively, you’ve got a complex problem on your hands. Fortunately, we offer dental care to assist you in restoring this function. That is, as long as you call us up, tell us about it, and come in for a visit.
If It’s Taking Forever
If you feel like it’s taking longer and longer to eat your food because chewing is just not as effective and quick as it used to be, there may be a variety of issues going on here. The best way to find out, of course, is to see us. For some, flattened chewing surfaces from problems like bruxism can come into play. A problem with the moisture in your mouth (dry mouth) can slow the process down because you need saliva to begin digesting your food. See us soon!
If Your Jaw Is Uncomfortable
If your jaw hurts, then your chewing comfort is going to take a nosedive! You rely on your jaw joints to let you open and close your mouth. A frequent concern is TMJ disorder, which happens when these joints are under some sort of stress and aren’t working well. We offer treatment!
If Your Teeth Hurt
Perhaps your chewing comfort is not at an all time high because your teeth don’t feel good. As you may already know, there’s a long list of possible problems that lead to tooth discomfort, including cavities, infection, bruxism, and more. To find out how to fix it, come on in.
