If a patient tells me they're having a hard time chewing, then I know they've got a problem with their chewing system—with their bite. So again, we would be more specific about identifying what the problem is, what's causing them to have problems chewing. Once we can identify and diagnose what that problem is, then we can develop treatment options to solve that problem so that they have a good chewing system, and they can basically chew whatever they want to eat and chew.
Your ability to chew is easy to take for granted, and once it is gone, you would do just about anything to have it back. Patients visit our Waco, TX office and talk about missing their favorite foods like steak, corn on the cob, and Texas-style ribs. So, if you are having a hard time chewing, the good news is that Dr. Thrasher of Hillcrest Dental Care has the skills and desire to help you regain your ability to eat confidently and chew comfortably.

Gain Back Your Ability To Chew
Let’s take a look at some common issues that might be affecting your ability to chew and see how Dr. Thrasher can help you reverse the problem.
Loose, Irritated Dentures – For many people, traditional dentures are satisfactory. However, more and more patients find that dentures just don’t cut it like their natural teeth did. If you can’t enjoy your favorite foods with your dentures, ask us about dental implant solutions that will stabilize and strengthen your replacement teeth.
Tooth Decay – A cavity here and there never hurt anyone, right? Wrong! Those cavities grow and multiply. A tooth filled with decay might feel sensitive and uncomfortable while you chew. Dr. Thrasher can remove the decay and provide a tooth-colored filling (or dental crown in cases of extreme decay).
Broken/Cracked Teeth – A broken or cracked tooth is a prime target for bacteria, so it’s important that we repair the damage as quickly as possible. A same-day crown is possible with the help of advanced technology at Hillcrest Dental Care in Waco, TX.
Toothache – When you are feeling pain in your tooth, it’s a sign that infection exists. A root canal is the only way to eradicate the bacteria while preserving your natural tooth. We can complete the entire process in a single appointment with the help of same-day crowns.
Call Dr. Thrasher today and let him know that you’re having a hard time chewing the food you love. After an initial appointment in our Waco, TX office, he can work to create a plan that will correct the issues in your smile. You can once again look forward to our favorite Texas tradition, barbeque!
