From this study (5 years ago):
tooth enamel became very weak. prior to starting treatment had very strong teeth, then after about two years, cavities started occuring faster than the dentist could get me scheduled to fix them. Then started having to pull bad teeth and am eventually losing all of them. Going to have denture plates this month.
