If a patient said they were having a hard time chewing, like so many other questions, and concerns, and problems that people have about dentistry, or with their dental care. The first thing to do is to sit down and spend some time getting to know them and understanding better where they're coming from and what their problems really are. There's so many solutions these days. There's not really a one size fits all for everybody. I've said for years that the same problem could come in the door in 10 different people and we end up with 10 slightly different answers. The best thing to do is to understand their problem, to find out exactly what's bothering them, and find a solution that's going to fit with their particular circumstances and within their wants and desires.
