The problems caused by dental troubles may have more of an effect on your ability to bite and chew than your appearance. Your seemingly healthy smile might be affected to tooth decay, TMJ dysfunction, or dental damage that makes it harder for you to place pressure on certain teeth. When these matters are not treated, they can continue to affect your quality of life, and they can worsen. Your Sheridan, WY dentist’s office is ready to help you work on the oral health issues that make biting and chewing uncomfortable. We can identify what problem or problems might call for treatment, and provide you with modern restorative dental work!
Why Are You Experiencing Pain When You Bite And Chew?
If your ability to naturally bite and chew has become compromised by pain in certain teeth, or discomfort around your face and jaw, you may be due for dental care. Ignoring discomfort can let a big problem slip your notice. For instance, you may be in need of treatment for tooth decay if you have a problem with dental sensitivity. If the problem is not addressed in time, bacteria can spread through your root and create new problems for you.
Correcting Your Problems With TMJ Dysfunction
TMJ dysfunction refers to any issues that concern your jaw joints, or the muscles in charge of moving your jaw. The problem may be concentrated at your jaw, but the effects can be spread further – you can experience headaches, facial pain, and even neck and shoulder discomfort. This is in addition to problems with your routine jaw motions. Your dentist can work with you on correcting issues with TMJ dysfunction, so you can be free from pain.
Restoring Those Unhealthy Teeth That Affect Your Smile
Treating tooth decay and dental damage can give you back your confident bite function. Dental crowns are made to do more than just defend teeth that have problems – yours should be strong enough to handle the pressure generated when you bite down. This means you can return to biting confidently, and not worry about pain in certain teeth. Our office can make your crown available to you in the same day as your visit, thanks to our CEREC technology.
