Repairing Tooth Enamel
I have always taken care of my teeth, but was recently diagnosed with acid reflux disease. I can also tell that I clench my teeth at night.
What can I do to protect my teeth? I already have noticeable indentions in the back of my top front teeth that have left sharp edges near the gumline.
Do I need a night guard? Could that pool the acid around my teeth? I am taking Zegerid, a medication to reduce the production of acid, but is it enough to protect my teeth against stomach acid? ...Visitor from MS
Yes, you probably need a nightguard. Maybe you need to put a fluoride solution into the nightguard.
You need to see a dentist ASAP for professional advice and treatment. Your condition will only worsen until you seek help.
