Enamel hypoplasia is a lifelong condition that results from having less enamel than normal. It can affect both the permanent and primary teeth because it is a developmental defect. It can appear as physically missing part of the tooth structure, such as the appearance of grooves, pits, or missing areas of the crowns. The condition can also cause a decrease in the mineral content of the enamel, known as hypomineralization. This can cause the teeth to appear translucent and lead to soft enamel. If you have the condition, you will require ongoing care from your dentist. Where is a dentist near me for enamel hypoplasia? Look no further. Dr. Mark Gray provides the comprehensive care you need.
