Not being able to eat the foods that you enjoy can take the joy out of eating a meal. Some people think that they have to be restricted in what they eat by their teeth. The fact is that teeth can be replaced with highly functional replacement teeth that also resemble natural teeth in appearance.

Chewing problems affect your overall health. If you can’t eat the foods you love because you’re restricted to a soft diet, it can lead to loss of appetite and poor nutrition. Webster, TX dentist Dr. Das can bring back your chewing ability and improve your quality of life with restorations and advanced teeth replacement solutions, such as dental implants.

Causes of Chewing Problems and Treatment

Having problems chewing can be a result of several different dental problems. Even if you have no idea as to what is causing you trouble with being able to chew your foods efficiently, you need to pay a visit to Clear Lake Dental Care to get you mouth checked out. Some of the problems that may be resulting in your inability to chew include extreme tooth decay, missing teeth, loose dentures, and toothaches. If you are having any of these problems, make an appointment immediately with Dr. Das, Dr. Darcey, or Dr. Pham.

Poor-Fitting Dentures and Missing Teeth

Old dentures need to be relined for a comfortable fit. If your dentures are too worn, replacement dentures are recommended. Having loose dentures can cause you more trouble than just not being able to chew; you will also notice changes in your speech, and you’ll also have to spend a great deal of time reapplying adhesives to keep your dentures in place.

Dr. Das offers dental implants for maximum comfort and function. If you are missing teeth, you will no doubt have problems when you are trying to chew food. Dental implants are the best and healthiest option to replace missing teeth because they are functional and beautiful. At Clear Lake Dental Care, we provide several types of implants, including Teeth in a Day, All-on-4, and immediate placement implants.

Extensive Decay

Bonding or fillings can be used to treat small to medium cavities. Severe damage is restored with a dental crown. If there is dental pulp infection, endodontic therapy, or root canal therapy, is performed to remove the dead pulp and bacteria. The root canals and the pulp chamber are sealed off, and the tooth is capped with a crown. If you are prone to cavities, Dr. Das may recommend special mouthwash, fluoride treatment, and sealants for extra protection. You may also need to visit us more frequently for cleaning appointments.
