I've been diagnosed since I was 5 with no enamel on my teeth, dentists have been perplexed and I've been treated as a guinea pig for much of my life in the dentist's chair. Recently my very back molar chipped away a little bit ( a normal occurance) and now the gum is swollen and there is considerable pain. I would love you opinion on treatment.

  • You seem to be suffering from amelogenesis imperfecta.Amelogenesis imperfecta is a tooth development disorder in which the teeth are covered with thin, abnormally formed enamel.Amelogenesis imperfecta is passed down through families as a dominant trait. That means you only need to get the abnormal gene from one parent in order for you to get the disease.The enamel of the tooth is soft and thin. The teeth appear yellow and are easily damaged. Both baby teeth and permanent teeth are affected.

    The treatment depends on the severity of the problem. Full crowns will improve the appearance of the teeth and protect them from damage.Treatment is often successful in protecting the teeth.
