I’m Having a Hard Time ChewingPatients Who are Having a Hard Time Chewing at Lakewood Dental Centre Read Transcript
If you're having any difficulty chewing and eating, we have to establish what the problem is—that’s where the diagnosis comes in. We have to evaluate not only how the teeth are, but how the jaw is, how the muscles are, and what's causing the functional problem. When we establish those things, then we have different treatment choices about different options about the way in which we can solve the problem. The first part of it is diagnosis that says—when you can find the problem and diagnose the problem, you can treat the problem. If you don't diagnose the problem, then the patient won't get the resolution they're looking for.

Secure Tooth Replacement Options
Dental implants are often compared to natural teeth. They fuse with your jawbone for a secure hold. Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB will work with a specialist to place your dental implant. Then, we will restore your dental implant by completing it with a replacement tooth.
A dental bridge is secured to your natural teeth to hold it in place. Lakewood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, MB offers fixed bridges, which are not removable. For a secure hold, you must have healthy teeth for your dental bridge to rely on. If you do not have healthy teeth but do have a healthy jawbone, a dental implant might be the better choice for you.
Repairing Damaged Teeth
The amount of tooth decay afflicting your tooth will help your dentist determine the best method for repairing your tooth.
- A tooth damaged by minor tooth decay may be fixed with a tooth-coloured filling.
- If the damage is moderate, the tooth can be covered with a dental crown to repair the shape of your tooth and make it stronger. We also offer partial crowns, known as inlays and onlays.
- More severe damage can be treated with a root canal, which can clear the infection from inside your tooth.
For cracks or minor chips that are more cosmetic in nature, we can apply dental veneers to hide those flaws.
