I can’t eat the foods I love…
Several oral health issues such as sensitivity, dentures and missing teeth can limit the type of foods you’re able to eat. Just because you’ve been living with a restricted diet due to oral issues for a while doesn’t mean you have to continue to do so. At Greater Baltimore Prosthodontics, we offer various solutions to resolve difficulty chewing so you can get back to eating the foods you love.
Ill-fitting dentures can make talking, drinking, and eating difficult because they move around in your mouth or cause discomfort/pain. When you can’t eat, drink or speak properly, it’s embarrassing and can lower your self-confidence. Happily, Greater Baltimore Prosthodontics has ways to correct denture problems customizable to your specific needs. A viable and increasingly popular solution to dentures that don’t stay put right is to transition to implant-supported dentures. Implant supported dentures have a secure, comfortable fit that traditional dentures don’t necessarily possess. Depending on your particular mouth makeup, you can choose from partially supported dentures and permanently anchored dentures.
Replacing missing teeth
When you’re missing one or more teeth, eating the foods you love along with drinking and talking are difficult and frustrating. Without all your teeth, you may also feel too embarrassed to smile. Missing teeth may also weaken the jawbone, lead to shrinking gums, result in tooth loss and cause your remaining teeth to shift. It’s vital to address and resolve missing teeth quickly so we can restore and preserve your smile and facial structure. Greater Baltimore Prosthodontics offers partial bridges, full and partial dentures, and dental implants to replace missing teeth and we work with you to find the best solution and help you regain your ability to eat your favorite foods.
Treating Tooth Sensitivity
Eating and drinking can become difficult if you suffer from tooth sensitivity or pain. The causes of sensitivity and tooth pain can include a variety of issues so only a dental exam can properly diagnose the problem. If you’re noticing sensitivity or suffering a toothache, contact Greater Baltimore Prosthodontics promptly to set up an appointment.
