What could be causing my teeth to be breaking?


Answer by  bubbyboy (9929)

Calcium loss can make your teeth break. Gum disease can also make the enamel weak and make them break. Putting a lot of stress on the teeth from eating ice or anything hard can make your teeth weak and cause them to break. Dental cavities can errode down through the tooth surface and cause breakage.

This could be from a number of factors. You might be lacking the appropriate amount of calcium to keep the bones strong. This could also be caused by having a disease, such as periodontal disease, gingivitis, or any other kind of gum disease. These diseases cause the tooth to begin to rot, then chip off or break.

This can be caused by severe injury, such as blows to the face or jaw. It can be caused by persistent teeth grinding (called bruxism); the teeth grinding at night wears down the teeth and can cause cracks or breakage. Cavities on the sides of teeth can cause weakness and enamel loss. If a tooth has broken, see a dentist.

This is normally the result of tooth decay, which is most prevalent in people with diets of high sugar and acidic foods and beverages. This is most commonly associated with soda and cola beverages.
