Dr. Keahey I’m Having a Hard Time Chewing
If we had a patient come in and ask about a hard time chewing, the process we need to look in, we want to look at the skeletal muscle. We want to address the area where the pain has come from. What kind of pain: is it sharp? Is it a dull, achy kind of pain? Want to check to see if we have any broken areas, filling material, and then also, X-ray at the time and physical exam.
After we’ve looked at all those things and talking with the patient, we figure out a treatment plan to help with their difficult situation at the moment.
