Drugs can some time cause teeth to fall apert. Check to see if any medication you may be taking will or can effect to teeth.  New AnswerYou are probably thinking of a disease called amelogenesis imperfecta. This disorder causes the enamel of the tooth to be formed imperfectly or to not form at all. This is a fairly rare disease that can be very difficult to treat.
Answer
It's called pereodontal disease and is caused by a receeding gum line so the teeth start to lean out and apart. it can be treated with pereodontal cleanings and surgery.
MEDICATIONS:
I can tell you from personal experience that a particular medication called Methadone Maintenance is a drug that EASILY causes teeth to just FALL APART. It causes the calcium in your body to be dangerously depleted and in turn, the first thing to become affected is your teeth. If you were to ask anyone in the field of methadone maintenance, they would tell you different, but I have spoken to many doctors and nutritionalists and they all say the same thing... If you plan on using methadone, you absolutely MUST be on at LEAST 1200 mgs of calcium a day if you are a woman ages 18-35 and a little less if you are a man or an older woman. Calcium depletion is dangerous for a multitude of reasons besides dental issues so take heed to this warning. TRUST ME - MEDICATIONS CAN CAUSE DENTAL ISSUES.
- Actually the calcium in your teeth is already "locked in" it will not be released back into the body, teeth can be decalcified on the surface by acids either from acidic foods or beverages such as citrus fruits, juices, or soda pop (even diet soda). If calcium is harvested from your body it comes from your bones where the turnover exists. Also, the old wives tale that pregnancy causes the calcium to be robbed from your teeth is totally false. MEDICATIONS do cause dental issues but it is because most medications can cause xerostomia or dry mouth (lack of adequate saliva). This works on several levels, first- saliva is needed to help your mouth wash away sugar and food debris naturally therefore a lack of saliva allows sugars to remain on the teeth longer providing a food source for the bacteria strep mutans and lactobacillus which produce acid from the sugar they eat, this acid is what causes tooth decay. Second, your saliva contains minerals such as calcium which are used by the tooth to remineralize or repair the earliest stage of demineralization, this process is enhanced by fluoride found in tap water, toothpaste, or ACT rinse. Third, dry mouth can also cause the bacteria in your mouth to overgrow and thrive. Saliva acts to naturally flush away free floating bacteria and help keep numbers under control. Sorry but the medication has no direct effect on teeth or causing teeth to fall apart. Amelogenesis imperfecta or dentinogenesis imperfecta can cause the enamel to "chip" apart. Tooth decay can cause the teeth to break down and at the later stages they may begin to fracture. Periodontal disease does not do anything to the teeth except let them get loose and fall out, Perio= arround, dontal = tooth. Periodontal disease is disease of the bone and gingiva around the tooth. People with periodontal disease can end up loosing teeth which are cavity free because the bone holding the tooth in is gone. Best to get a dental checkup and get the accurate info from a professional. -Registered Dental Hygienist :)
