If you visit your dentist with complains about any of the symptoms of a dental problem, such as sensitivity and discoloration, your dentist may suspect you are suffering from dental erosion. Your dentist will question you more about your symptoms, about your dental history and about your general health history. Your dentist will then conduct a physical examination, which includes probing your teeth with dental instruments, and will then determine the problem and extent of the issue. They may also ask to see X-rays in order to assess any amount of cavities or tooth decay that you may have. Accordingly, your dentist will then be able to suggest a course of treatment.
