Crumbly teeth

07/08/2008

Question:

I am a 49yr old female who has always had strong, healthy teeth, however 6 months ago my enamel sheared off my bottom two front teeth and today one of my molars has crumbled, which filled me with dread. I am fit and hopefully healthy, although i do have 3 monthly injections of B12 (Pernicious anaemia), i take Omega 3, Menapause tablets and have just started taking Calcium & Vitamin D tablets. Please advise

Answer:

An examination of your bite by a prosthodontist is recommended. You may also find additional information at the link below.
