pieces of my teeth have been falling out. It doesn't hurt, it happens while I'm eatting. I'm 24 and I don't know if it normal. I do tend to clench my teath when I sleep. Could that be the problem? Should I do see someone?

  • It is not normal. It may be due to clenching of the teeth which is causing wearing of the teeth and thinning of enamel which eventually falls or it can be due to decayed teeth in which cavity is formed and tooth becomes weak. You have to schedule a appointment with dentist will do clinical examination and will make treatment plan. If it is due to wearing then you have wear a night guard which will prevent the clenching.
