Teeth falling apart

User Level:
Posted by: dollface  (9 years ago)

When I was pregnant, one of my molars was broken down the gum line. There was no pain and I was afraid of getting dental treatment while pregnant so I left it as it is. Three months after giving birth, I noticed that most of my teeth are falling to bits. I am breastfeeding my 4-month old baby and I am not sure if this has an effect to the strength of my teeth. The other day, one of my front teeth cracked and has a cavity in it. It looks horrible. What's causing my teeth to fall apart? I brush my teeth at least twice a day.

Thank you for your time!

Hello Dollface!

I would advise you to seek the help of your dentist. Your teeth might still be savable. Since you are breastfeeding, take foods that are rich in calcium like cheese, yogurt and milk.

Hi there!

Go to the dentist as soon as possible. Your broken/cracked tooth is rotting away and it will likely affect your other teeth. The dentist will treat your teeth with an appropriate restorative cosmetic treatment depending on how damaged they were.
