I have pain when I bite down, what does that mean?

This is one of the most common issues I see in my practice. I feel like I say this in all my writings but . . . there are several causes to this problem. And again, it takes several more questions to get to the root of the problem(no pun intended). First, have you had any dental work done recently? If the answer is yes, it may be a simple bite adjustment. We try our best when we do fillings and crowns to send our patients out with a perfect, compatible bite. We can usually get the bite just biting together perfect, but the other movements you do with your jaw when eating, clenching and grinding are harder to recreate in our chair. Also, our patients are often numb and have been open

Why do I have a cavity now?

Why did I get a cavity? First, the type of cavity gives us an idea of cause, next we consider oral hygiene habits, and lastly, diet changes
