If you have a problem with a painful or sensitive tooth, you can be reminded of this trouble every time you try to enjoy a meal. After all, chronic dental pain can make biting and chewing difficult, and you can find yourself making an extra effort to avoid putting any pressure on a sensitive tooth. You should know that simply avoiding a painful tooth is NOT an effective long-term oral health care strategy! At our Bellaire, TX dental practice, we can make sure that a tooth exhibiting signs of problems is thoroughly examined, and properly restored. With a dental crown, a vulnerable tooth can be protected, and you can once again bite and chew without problems.
Tooth Pain Can Make Biting And Chewing Difficult
If you continue to feel tooth pain when you bite and chew, you should seek treatment and have the matter addressed. Simply going out of your way to avoid biting down on a problem tooth is not a sufficient practice – this approach means ignoring symptoms of something serious, and your compromised bite can lead to jaw problems. You can be happy to know that the appropriate restorative dental work can address all of your issues. Once damaged or decayed material has been removed, and (if necessary) a root canal treatment is performed, a dental crown can provide lasting support.
Restoring Your Tooth With A CEREC Crown Can Take Less Time Than You Might Anticipate
How long will it take your dentist to address your problems with a painful or sensitive tooth? The issue can be resolved once you receive your dental crown, which can take less time than you anticipate. Because our practice uses CEREC technology to produce custom restorations, we can have your custom crown designed, crafted, and placed in the span of just one appointment!
Other Issues That Can Make Biting And Chewing Difficult
Your problems with your bite may be unrelated to isolated tooth pain. Sometimes, an issue with a person’s bite is a consequence of TMJ dysfunction, which refers to problems with your jaw joints and/or the muscles that move your jaw. An issue with your bite can also connect to poor dental alignment. In addition to increasing your risk for TMJ problems, crooked teeth can cause you to overuse certain teeth, leaving them prone to problems.
