I’m Having a Hard Time Chewing

If you feel pain or discomfort every time you chew, call your Washington dentist right away.

Pain or discomfort while chewing may indicate tooth decay or other serious oral problems such as infections, sores or injuries.

Tooth pain may be caused by dental abscess. If left untreated, infection can spread to the mouth, throat, jaw and face and cause excruciating pain. In some cases, infection can cause breathing difficulty. Toothache may also be caused by an inflamed tooth nerve due to extraction, injury, decay or tooth loss.

Ill-fitting dentures

If ill-fitting dentures are causing pain or discomfort every time you eat, you should consider alternatives such as dental implants.

Dental implants are great because they function like natural teeth. They have prosthetic tooth roots that are surgically anchored to the jawbone. The roots are then covered by dental crowns that are crafted to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Because implants function like natural teeth, you can say goodbye to the inconveniences of using removable dentures.

Other alternatives to removable dentures are dentures on implants and mini implants. Come in for a dental checkup so that your Washington dentist can give you a customized dental solution.

Pain or discomfort should be treated immediately to prevent more serious dental problems. Schedule a check-up with your Washington dentist for permanent relief. Call Marineland Dental at 509-591-0515 or fill out the appointment form.
