Of course, setting up a dental health checkup is also a very wise decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I think that my dentures have something to do with the noise that I create when I chew my food. Is there anything I can do about this?

Answer: Of course. If you think you’re not dealing with a particular dental health concern but with ill-fitting dentures or those that do not remain in place, consider this: Add denture adhesive into your daily routine for better stability. Or, see us for a denture repair, replacement, or to discuss implant support instead.

Question: I tend to find that I’m the only person breathing very loudly as I eat at the table. Is something wrong with my mouth?

Answer: Generally speaking, if it’s your breathing, then you are probably congested. Do you mouth breathe frequently? We encourage you to speak with your general practitioner and perhaps with an ear nose and throat doctor to discover the cause of blocked nasal passages.

Question: What if I’m hearing grinding or clicking types of noises? Is this related to my dental health?

Answer: This is generally a sign that your teeth are hitting one another as a result of poor misalignment or unbalanced dental work. Or, you may be dealing with jaw joint concerns we call TMJ disorder. We may assist with both! Come see us soon for care.
