Chewing difficulties are most commonly linked with jaw joint problems or with dentures if you wear them.
Jaw joint problems may cause a clicking or locking of the jaw joint and can be associated with very strong dental or facial pain. Please contact us immediately for advice.
If dentures are being worn they may not fit properly or may be worn down, which makes it difficult to eat properly.
Chewing can also be troublesome if you have teeth missing, or if tooth restorations are not quite right. If you would like to eat comfortably again, please speak to us about it - we have a range of solutions to help you.
