You're having difficulty chewing. What in the world could that mean? It could be something very minor. Maybe you slept funny on your pillow and it's going to take a day for your bite to work out and then it's all over again. A lot of times, patients have difficulties, and then when they make it into the office, the difficulty's gone. That's exasperating, but if you're having trouble chewing and it lasts more than a couple of days, then it's probably a good idea to have it checked out.
What are the possibilities? You could be grinding your teeth at nighttime. You could be clenching your teeth at nighttime. You could be clenching your teeth during the day when you're concentrating on your work or some serious project. You may have bitten into something hard, not today, but it was some time ago, and it started a crack in the tooth and now it's just beginning to show symptoms. If you do have a crack in your tooth, we need to take a look at it. We can do some testing to find out if that in fact is the case. A lot of times, it has something to do also with thermal sensitivity. You might have cold sensitivity. You might have hot sensitivity. The funny thing is, it won't happen every time you chew. It's occasional. That really is the sign of a cracked tooth. The fix for that generally is a crown. That's something that we can do very quickly for you and get you comfortable again.
You can smile and chew with confidence! Call Jennifer Perkins, DDS at 256-801-0002 for a restorative dentistry consultation.
