My mother is 47 years old. Her teeth are becoming brittle . I mean they are breaking in very tiny pieces. What does this mean? Is it low calcium? What are the prevention methods for this. Thanks in advance.

It can be due low calcium or fluorosis. We have to assess the condition. Arrange a visit to dentist.
