How do I know if I need an enamelectomy?

You may need an enamelectomy, or enamel repair, if you experience tooth pain or gum irritation, which may be a sign of tooth decay or gum disease. You may require an enamelectomy if you are in the habit of grinding, chewing, or clenching your teeth, which can cause painful cracks and chips in the teeth.

See your dentist regularly to maintain dental health. Your dentist can monitor your dental history and diagnose issues early on when they are most easily and successfully treated.
