Chew Without Pain or Discomfort

Fredericksburg, VA Implant Specialists

If you’re having a hard time chewing, it can negatively impact your quality of life and possibly even your overall health. You cannot enjoy the foods you love. You start choosing softer foods, which may not offer the good nutrition that your body needs. When you cannot have steak for a special occasion or eat crunchy vegetables and snacks that you crave, the inability to chew becomes more than a nuisance. There are many reasons for having a hard time chewing, but Dr. Moss and our staff have solutions so you can eat your favorite foods and make healthier choices.

Missing Teeth

If you have one or more missing teeth, it is best not to go without. Once you lose a tooth, your jaw bone density begins to deteriorate, and your face will start having a sunken appearance, making you look older. Dental implants provide permanent tooth replacement. They can restore your ability to chew and improve the look of your smile!

Decaying Teeth

Pain caused by tooth decay can limit your ability to chew and make you miserable. If you are currently in pain, please call us, and we will see you right away. Obviously, it is better to prevent tooth decay with proper oral hygiene and regular dental visits, but nobody is perfect. Sometimes cavities happen. Depending on the level of decay, you may just need a filling – we offer tooth-colored fillings that halt decay and are practically invisible. If the decay is advanced, a root canal may be needed. Following a root canal, we will protect your tooth with a beautiful crown. When a tooth cannot be saved, it may need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant. You will be amazed how much better you can chew when the pain is gone!

Poorly Fitted Dentures

If you cannot count on your dentures to stay put when you chew, it can be difficult to eat. It is embarrassing when they shift around or slip out. Dentures that do not fit correctly can also cause pain, rubbing your gums the wrong way or hurting you when you bite down. If you would like to get rid of your dentures for good, we have a solution: Implant-Retained Dentures. We can place 4 to 6 implants and secure a set of dentures in your mouth permanently! No more worry, no more adhesives, no more slipping around. You can chew and smile with confidence and look years younger!
