You aren't alone with dental issues. The enamel on my teeth is coming off in sheets. I was sent from dentist to dentist trying to find a cause and to halt the loss of enamel. Finally I was sent to the university dental school specialists. I was told it is likely a combination of things events: 1) poor absorption of nutrients due to 25 years of not being diagnosed, 2) medications to treat my CD and AS related problems causing low saliva and pH problems and 3) some dietary habits like acidic liquids.
Will your insurance authorize sedation/anesthsia for your dental work? If so you would not be awake and therefore not know what is happening. My daughter needed 10 teeth extracted and insurance paid for her to be put under.
