Enamel Loss - Erosion Ask The Dentist Ara Nazarian Question:
Loss of Enamel from Sjogren's: Is there a treatment or something the dentist can use on teeth to help prevent further enamel erosion and tooth decay? ...Visitor from MI

Answer:
One of the biggest concerns for patients that have Sjorgen's syndrome is deficiency in saliva flow leading to dry mouth and root decay.

Glass Ionomer restorations that release higher levels of fluoride have helped patients such as yourself in decreasing cavities and tooth problems.

Some dentists also have access to dental cements that contain glass ionomers as well as certain brands of dental sealants. Consult with your dentist to learn more about what might work best for you.

A Nazarian, DDS
