Question:

i have enamel problem. i often face a problem when i eat lemon. imli @ such type of food. then i cant eat normal food. what i should do for it. And what is the reason behind it.

Answer:

Lemons contain a lot of acid which can erode enamel with enough exposure. If enamel is already lost, crowns may be indicated. Other causes for enamel loss include stomach acid with acid reflux disease or frequent vomiting as in bulimia.
