Keeping my teeth from future chips and breakage

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: blogrider  (8 years ago)
Hello all,

I always had great teeth, no gum disease and only a few cavities. However, for the past few years, I had a root canal on one of my bottom molars. Due to insurance issues, I didn’t have it crowned. Recently, that tooth chipped a bit while I was eating. I can’t have my tooth checked anytime soon. I am also in a medication for my other health problem. I now have acid reflux due to this. What should I do to prevent more chips and future breakage on my teeth? I have avoided eating on the side of my mouth, which has the root canal. Any tip/suggestions would be great.

Why can't you have your teeth checked anytime soon? What is preventing that?

Acid reflux puts you at severe risk for decay. IMMEDIATELY, you need to have protective trays fabricated by a dentist, fill them with fluoride gel each night, and sleep with them. This is the only way you will succeed in keeping your teeth.
