Suggest treatment for teeth abscess

I recently went to see my dentist. He told me that a medication i am taking for my leg, has caused my teeth to start to erode. He said my bottom teeth are the worst and that i may end up with dentures. I am only 26 and i dont want dentures. Is there any way to reverse the damage.

thanks for using Health Care Magic.

Read your query.

Since you have not mentioned what medicine you are taking and for what condition ,it is not appropriate to comment on your condition.
Once the teeth are eroded ,you cannot reverse them,though you can only have them filled and avoid further erosion.

I would advice you to follow the dentist advice ( if you want you can have a second opinion) and get the teeth treated with fillings or root canal treatment followed by crowns.

Hope this was useful.
Thanks and regards.
