Two weeks ago while I was eating, I noticed I was chewing something like salt granules. Checked it and found that the parts of the outer surface of my molar teeth got broken. Today, if we divide a molar teeth into two halves, a whole half that I can see was completely broken from below the gum.

I'm already struggling w a flare up and whenever I see the dentist either the anesthesia or the antibiotics prescribed afterwards throw me into a flare up. I'm not ready for a new flare up now. Thanks to my low d levels and long-standing GERD. I did not complain from this molar teeth before. It's a real misery.

Sorry to hear of the added struggle Minnie. Best thing to do though is somehow get it repaired. Maybe if you discuss your health with your dentist prior to going in to have it taken care of. Hope you're feeling better soon.

73monte, thank you so much.
Yes, I do agree with you. I'll try my best to have it get repaired. Hopefully, this works.
