You probably don’t give much the notion of chewing problems until one actually shows up in your life! Or, if you’ve never really felt like chewing was an easy, effortless task, it may be something you simply assumed was a challenge for nearly everyone! To help you recognize that chewing should be a comfortable process, and that there’s dental care and a success improvement option for whatever your particular concern includes, our Columbia, TN team is here to help! Consider common categories of chewing-related concerns and then come in for additional guidance! You’ll quickly find yourself well on your way toward easy snacks and mealtimes.
Pain In Teeth While Chewing
Of course, it’s not normal or a good sign for you to have pain in your teeth, while you’re chewing. This may either point to an underlying oral health problem or serious sensitivity. In any case, you need professional dental care to provide you with answers and to set things right again. In order to say goodbye to this chewing problem, we encourage you to schedule a checkup with us. We may determine whether you require additional preventive care or guidance, whether you need restorative care for an issue like tooth decay, etc. Remember, this discomfort is certainly something we can treat!
Teeth That Don’t Fit Together When Chewing
If your teeth have never fit together or this is a new problem, no matter what, it’s a chewing problem that requires our attention. Teeth that do not promote a balanced bite can make it hard to chew your food and even very uncomfortable. Teeth may grind or tap against one another, which can lead to damage. A problem with balance may also promote additional oral health concerns, such as bruxism or TMJ disorder. See us for dental care, such as orthodontics, which can align your smile, so this particular chewing issue becomes a thing of the past.
Jaw Joint Discomfort As You Chew
Perhaps, while you chew, your teeth feel perfectly fine but your jaw joints do not. Are you experiencing strange sounds or sensations? Pressure or pain? Something close to exhaustion in your jaw joints? When things aren’t good, remember that this may point to a TMJ disorder issue that we can most definitely treat with dental care! That is, assuming you come in to see our team to learn more!
