3 Reasons Chewing Is Difficult

Have you noticed that chewing has become difficult lately? Perhaps it has been challenging for a while and you think it’s probably time you do something about it. If you’re not really sure what’s going on, you can relax. We can quickly solve this concern during a dental checkup. What do you have to do to make this happen? Simply pick up the phone, dial our number, and we will be more than happy to schedule time for you to come in for a dental visit. As for what might be happening with your smile, we’ll get you started with some possibilities.

#1: Discomfort

Ask yourself how comfortable your smile is when you’re eating. Does it hurt? Is it sensitive? Does something just not feel right? If so, discomfort may be the problem that’s making it difficult to chew. Coming in for a dental visit is so important in this case because pain is a symptom of a wide variety of issues. Let us identify the cause, fix it, and restore comfortable chewing.

#2: Alignment Issues

If you have recently lost a tooth or if you’ve been dealing with misalignment for some time, your teeth may not line up in a balanced fashion. As a result, getting your mouth into a pose that promotes effective chewing can become difficult if not nearly impossible. We would encourage you to schedule a dental visit, so we can come up with a plan to align and balance your bite.

#3: Worn Teeth

Worn tooth surfaces don’t offer you the chewing power you once enjoyed. This can occur due to wear and tear, bruxism, erosion due to acidic drinks, and more. A dental visit will reveal the erosion and will allow us to move forward with repairing your teeth.
