End Chewing Problems Today
There are several causes of chewing problems: tooth decay, loose teeth, teeth sensitivity, advanced gum disease, missing teeth and poor-fitting dental appliances. When you can’t chew certain foods, your diet is very restricted. You may lose your appetite because you’re not used to eating soft, bland foods, which can lead to poor nutrition over time. Dr. Dores can end your chewing problems for good with a custom treatment plan.
Bad Teeth and Tooth Decay
Dr. Dores uses bonding material or fillings to fix small cavities. For larger cavities, composite fillings or inlays/onlays (a special type of indirect filling) are recommended. Severe damage is repaired with a dental crown or a tooth-colored covering that encases the entire tooth. If infection has reached the center of the tooth, Dr. Dores will perform a root canal and restore the tooth with a crown. People who get lots of cavities can benefit from more frequent cleaning appointments and using special mouth rinses.
If your denture or bridge is old and ill-fitting, Dr. Dores can reline the appliance for a more comfortable fit. Dr. Dores can also replace the old appliance with a new one if it is broken, cracked or unable to be repaired.
Dr. Dores is an implant specialist with extensive experience restoring missing teeth with different types of implants. Dental implants look, feel and function just like the real thing and do not require modification of surrounding teeth. It is the best teeth replacement option available today.
