Re: why is enamel wearing off my teeth

I was bulimic for 30 years and it just melted the enamel off my teeth. I now have none of those teeth but dental implants and a prosthetic smile. I wish I hadn't made myself vomit all those years.
I am allergic to carbs: I break out in fat!

Re: why is enamel wearing off my teeth

Brushing too hard or too long with a hard tooth brush, over use of teeth whitening agents or abrasive toothpastes, GERD or Acid Reflux as well as nutrional deficiencies (calcium, Vit D and magnesium) and dietary choices (the high comsumption of sugar and/or acids in our food and drink, especially if you do not brush or rinse afterwards) are some of the causes. Genetics may play a role as well.
