03/31/2009

Question:

I am wondering why my teeth have translucent blotchs on them.I am an adict and I quit using a couple months ago. This is when the blotchs started appearing. I am hoping you can help me diagnoss this problem so i can get the proper help I need. Thank you!

Answer:

Your teeth may be starting to decay especially if the blotches are  down around the gumlines.  I suggest you see your local dentist.  Extra fluoride +/- mouth rinse(s) may help.
