Fragility of teeth is one of the most common and most serious dental problems that require prompt resolution. Ignoring the symptoms of increased brittleness of the teeth threatens the occurrence of serious dental integrity disorders, the restoration of which may require implantation or full prosthetics of the teeth.

Today we want to talk about why teeth are crumbling and how to prevent the onset of this disease.

So, most often the causes of tooth decay are:

  • mechanical injuries;
  • non-compliance with hygiene rules for oral care;
  • incorrect bite;
  • an unbalanced diet and, as a result, a lack of vitamins in the body;
  • hormonal failures;
  • Unqualified dental surgery, etc.

Treatment of increased brittleness of teeth, as a rule, depends on the cause of the disease, since it is directed primarily at its elimination, and then on the strengthening of tooth enamel. Nevertheless, there are general recommendations, following which it is possible to reduce the fragility of the teeth: adhere to the rules for oral care, provide a varied and complete diet, including dental and gum products, refuse to take too hard food, etc.

What to do when the teeth are crumbling?

First of all, you need to contact a dentist, because only a specialist can establish the cause of tooth decay and prescribe an effective treatment, taking into account the specifics of the problem. So, for example, the treatment can only involve the increase of oral hygiene, the restoration of a balanced diet or the appointment of a vitamin complex. In some cases, in order to reduce the fragility of the teeth, more complex measures may be required: remineralization or unit restoration of the enamel with lumineers, veneers, crowns; Treatment of other diseases that could cause tooth decay (weakened immunity, diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, etc.).
