Well, it's very disconcerting not to be able to chew. That's something we all need to do, and we're definitely very concerned when a patient has a difficult time chewing. We would need to do a complete exam, take a look at all the factors, whether it's a muscular situation, a tooth situation, and see what could be done to improve your chewing ability. Our goal is to get you back to a comfortable chewing situation.
Dr. Betts recommends dental implants to many of his patients in Decatur, AL to replace missing teeth. They look and feel more like your natural teeth than any other tooth replacement. Implants can be used in place of dentures, bridges, partials, or a single missing tooth. They don’t slip or shift in your mouth — a very important benefit when eating and speaking. Dental implants also help preserve bone after teeth are lost or extracted which keeps your face and smile younger-looking. They are a good value because they can last a lifetime with good care.
Dr. Betts knows how important your smile is to how you look. More importantly, Dr. Betts knows how important your smile is to how you feel.
