When a patient comes to me and says they're having difficulties in chewing, the same thing they usually come to me saying I have a problem when I sleep at night that I clench my teeth or they don't fit together very well. So there's kind of two things that occur with patients that come in with I can't chew. The first thing with that is, is it left, right, upper, lower? So you have to focus in on ... It's looking before you leap, you have to focus in on is it a specific tooth or is it several teeth? It's listening to what's wrong, trying to determine what's wrong, find the proper track or pathway to follow to correct it. Is it a multifaceted problem? It is just a single tooth?

You may be wondering, What is restorative dental care, and how can it help me? Several dental procedures fall under this umbrella, and they all work to repair and preserve your oral health.
- When tooth decay has caused a cavity or infection in your tooth, we will clear out the bacteria and seal the tooth. Depending on the damage, we will close the space with a metal-free tooth filling or dental crown.
- If the decay has reached your tooth’s pulp, we’ll perform a root canal to preserve your natural tooth and prevent the infection from spreading.
- We can cover damage that is too severe for a filling but doesn’t require a crown with inlays and onlays.
