Could be a nutritional problem. Are you underweight? Do you think you have an eating disorder? Do you eat a well balanced diet with vegetables, protein, and dairy? Any drugs in your life? This should not happen to someone as young as yourself and you should see a doctor for a full work up. This could be a symptom of a much bigger problem.

Get a new dentist, you probably grind them in your sleep.

One of my front tooth chipped about two months ago, so I asked my dentist if it's okay to just leave it. She said it was okay, so I'm leaving it as is.

Hi all am back and nashing at the bit!

Well the teeth are stable, just chipped a bit, have special cream that is supposed to help. I am eating ok, maybe too much wine but there you go! It's great to be on line.

Still grind the teeth a bit but that's life, just don't care now! I am bobbing along in my own way!

My little boy will be 11 on Tuesday, my daughter has turned 13 oh boy am I feeling old! But have a new puppy who is just scrumptious, and keeps us all going.

Life is life!!!

Tulip--

Glad you're back on line.

Puppies are a combination of frustration and skilled therapy. Furthermore with a puppy in the house, there is always cheerful conversational material in the house.

Chipping teeth


I have same problem ...of chipping teeth .

My bone density is 86 % .

My Calcium is OK

Only change in my eating style was ...breaking the almonds with my front teeth.

I don t consume any soft drink , or any alcohol .

Hoever I have been taking sugar sweetner in my tea.

COULD EXCEESIVE TEA CONSUMPTION CAUSE LOSS OF TEETH ??

Possibly, but lemon (if you add it) can do a lot of damage. The acids can be as bad or worse than sugar.

@Black tulip,
Hello Community,

There could be three reasons why your front teeth are chipping away, but none has to do with not getting enough calcium. One is your bite is putting a lot of pressure on the front teeth and your bite is not aligned to distribute pressure to all the teeth, have your bite looked at by your dentist. You might need as simple as a bite adjustment or as complicated as orthodontic work. Secondly, you might be a bruxer and you grind your teeth at night or when you are stressed, talked to your dentist you might need a night-guard. Or the chipping could be because of a habit like nail chewing, pencil biting etc.

Best Regards,
Charle Goster
