Brittle teeth

One of the dentist told me that i have flourosis which makes the teeth brittle and yes i feel difficult to bite hard food sometimes and a part of my tooth will break sometimes which will make me to feel sensitivity in that area and i have undergone 2 RCT's and some 6 fillings and i am worried that if this is the case then probably after 10 years my mouth will be full of fillings and RCT's. so is there any solution to solve my problem.

Hi there... Certainly, flourosed teeth are much more prone for cavities, sensitivity, and chipping...because of weakened enamel... Visit your dentist regularly for routine checkup every 6 months.. Additionally... U can use remineralising toothpaste... (Which should not contain fluoride, but other remineralising agents) And GC tooth Mousse...(not the GC Tooth mousse PLUS Because that again contains fluoride) Take care..!!

Hi..yes it's true that fluoride affected teeth are more prone for cavities. Brush twice daily. Visit dentist once in three months for regular check up. Use tooth mouse plus for brushing teeth for two months. Regards

Well you can expect repeated fillings and if requited root canal as well. You can improve your teeth using Tooth Mousse Plus.
