First of all, thank you very much for your great service.
My question: I have small white spots on all of the visible teeth in my upper jaw. They are hardly noticeable on the canine teeth and on the # 2 teeth, but are clearly noticeable on the # 1 teeth. They are also visible on the # 4 and #5 teeth. The spots are only located on the bottom ends of the teeth, i.e., far away from the gums. One dentist mentioned these could be due to an excess of fluoride during childhood (I can remember that back in the 70s, when I was a child, I used to get fluoride tablets; I am 40 years old now); a different doctor talked about decalcification being a possible cause.
Neither of the two dentists wanted to modify them with though, because they look natural [the white spots]. Can I do anything about this through brushing or something similar? And: Once a week, I brush my teeth with “Elmex Fluoride Gel”. Is this harmful to me and does it actually promote the spots?
Kind regards and thank you in advance.
