Easy Ways To Prevent Teeth Erosion
One of the most common issues we see in our office is dental erosion, which occurs when tooth enamel is dissolved by acid. This erosion can lead to sensitivity, yellowing and pitted or worn teeth.
Believe it or not, many everyday foods and beverages are the culprit of acid wear, even those promoted as “healthy”. For example, your post workout sports drinks or even lemon water.
Here are simple steps to prevent teeth erosion:
- Avoid sugary or acidic beverages or use a straw to reduce contact with teeth.
- Finish meals with acid-neutralizing milk or cheese.
- After consuming anything acidic, wait an hour before brushing your teeth.
Our team can alert your to any signs of erosion and make sure to address any issues you might have!
