I had two crowns break off below the gum line. I have a dry mouth due to meds that I am taking. I am doing every thing I'm supposed to for this. My dentist says that the roots are brittle and I might loose more theeth. What is your opinion on brittle roots and what I can do to reverse this? John

  • You have not written which meds you are taking but if meds are causing dry mouth then that means there is less of saliva and the teeth are more prone to decay. To avoid this you have to go for regular checkups from dentist and get the fluoride treatment done regularyly so that teeth donot get decayed or you can go for the crowning of teeth so that they donot break. You can discuss with your dentist and do the treatment accordingly. for more info on dry mouth you can check this link in our website... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-dry-mouth-xerostomia-53.aspx
