Difficulty in Chewing

Difficulty in chewing food

Difficulty in chewing food can be caused by a variety of factors, some of which include:

  1. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD): TMD is a common cause of difficulty in chewing
    food, as it can cause pain and stiffness in the jaw joint, making it difficult to open and close
    the mouth and chew food properly.
  2. Dental problems: Dental problems such as missing or decayed teeth, ill-fitting dentures, or
    orthodontic problems can make it difficult to chew food properly.
  3. Neurological conditions: Neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple
    sclerosis, or a stroke can cause difficulty in chewing food.
  4. Muscles weakness: Weakness of the muscles that control the jaw, such as the masseter and
    temporalis, can also cause difficulty in chewing food.
  5. Gastrointestinal disorders: Gastrointestinal disorders such as acid reflux or esophageal
    cancer can cause difficulty in chewing food.
  6. Medications: Some medications can cause difficulty in swallowing or dry mouth, which can
    make it difficult to chew food.
  7. Ageing: As people age, they may experience difficulty in chewing food due to weaker jaw
    muscles and tooth loss.
  8. Certain medical conditions: Cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions can also
    cause difficulty in chewing food.
