If you are having trouble chewing, the simple act of eating can become painful, uncomfortable, or difficult. You should be able to enjoy each meal, and at the office of Michael Smith DMD, LLC, we can help end your worry and discomfort.

Whether you are missing teeth, living with dentures that no longer fit, or have poor oral health, we can offer you the care you need.There are many reasons you can have difficulty chewing, and our Belleville dental practice has solutions for you:

Oral Health

Gum disease, cavities, and weak teeth can all cause difficulty chewing, especially when you’re eating hot or cold foods. We can offer dental cleanings, root canal therapy, dental crowns, and more to improve your ability to enjoy your meals. If you have a concern about your dental health, schedule an appointment with us today.
Your first visit to our office will involve a thorough examination of your mouth along with digital X-rays to help us find problems invisible to the naked eye. Your dental health is important, so please do not wait to address your difficulties now. Putting off a simple issue can mean more costly and uncomfortable procedures later on.

Loose Dentures

If you can’t eat the food you love because your dentures are slipping, causing irritation, or just do not fit well anymore, dental implants may be right for you. By attaching your dentures to your jaw, you can return to eating the same foods you used to love with no discomfort! Dental implants are a great solution for many people, but we would like to examine your specific situation first. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation to learn more about dental implants.

Missing Teeth

If you are missing teeth, chewing can become extremely difficult. Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, we can offer you a solution that will allow you to eat with ease! We can fit you with a crown, bridge, dental implants or dentures that can help you eat the foods you love without any pain or discomfort.
