Enamel deficiency

07/17/2007

Question:

I am 20 years old, and ever since my permanent teeth came through, I have had a severe enamel deficiency. My mother told me it was from an antibiotic she gave me as a child while my permanent teeth were developing. Is there anywhere to find information about this, and have others had a simliar problem? What type of antibiotic would cause this? I have had severe tooth sensitivity since I was a child, so I am finally having crowns put on a 6 of the teeth.
