Repairing Tooth Enamel
Effect of Purging on Enamel: I used to purge and my dentist was concerned of the enamel
loss on the backside of my teeth.
Most of my teeth are transparent and my dentist said it is the worst he has seen in 30 yrs. I do not purge anymore but I seem to still keep losing enamel for some other reason.
I have been chewing nicorette gum for almost 8 months now. Could this be the reason why I
continue to lose enamel? Does enamel ever regenerate itself over time? ...Visitor from OH
Chewing nicorette gum does not cause loss of enamel. Unfortunately, enamel, as most parts of our body has no power of regeneration.
If you are still losing enamel it is extremely possible that you are grinding your teeth both during the night and during the day. Have your dentist double check this for you and good luck!
