I don't know what is causing this & my dentist doesn't either. It all happened just in the last very few years. I heard a claim that ant-acids could cause this, but so could several other things. I need something crazy like 16-17 fillings, 2-3 more extractions. All teeth have irregular edges all around, crumbling badly.

I have chronic ear infections, with partial hearing loss in 1 ear. I'm legally blend in left eye, maybe 20/100 uncorrected in right eye, so going blind there, too. Also had a blood clot in nose that made real gusher of a nose bleed. My bones throughout my body are getting weaker.

Don't know if I need someone less specialized than a dentist to decide if any of these are related & offer a clue. Or is there a more specialized type of dentist that would know why it seems my teeth are rapidly going as if they are being attacked by hammers, chisels, & saws? Could it be bone cancer? I only brush & floss before bed, but this seems not the whole explanation as this train wreck is just last 2-3 years. I'm a 63 y/o M. Thanks in advance for any help.

Sounds like you need a doctor, and a bone density scan, and a full blood workup. When was the last time you had your CBCs? How many antacids are you taking every day, that you think that might have even a slight chance of being a possibility?

It sounds like you have a lot of medical issues - and at your age you really should have some coordination of care. That means whatever doctors you are seeing, need to be in touch with each other, so it's like a group effort to ensure the health of their patient. That's what a PCP is supposed to be for, but they are rarely ever actually used as such. I recommend you get in touch with your PCP (primary care physician) and ask them to be your "information central" with regards to ALL your medical needs. And have them gather the medical records of all your doctors, and look at it with the wider lens of a generalist rather than any specialist could see.
