FAQ:  Dental Decalcification



  • Decalcification caused by Braces: After braces, 4 areas of decalcification eroded on my lower teeth. It has been 15 years now of using fluoride gel, dental flossing and rinsing after each meal. Six years ago I woke up and noticed an area of missing enamel on an upper tooth. I stopped drinking soda, juice, or eating candy, and added xylitol. My teeth are still eroding. I use fluoride gel nightly, wear a retainer (that I wash nightly) and get more frequent dental cleanings. The erosion is happening along the line where my retainer metal hits. Are the 6-month dental cleanings too harsh? Is the fluoride a scam? Or is my 15-year retainer wear either blocking the benefits of remineralizing saliva or promoting bacterial growth in my mouth? ...
