Are you a victim of enamel erosion? Did you know that enamel erosion is preventable? Enamel erosion is most common in mouths that suffer from poor oral hygiene and those that are exposed to many different types of oral hazards and dangers. Protect your smile from enamel erosion with these helpful tips:
– Limit the amount of low pH foods in your diet. Foods and drinks that have low pH levels are more acidic and more likely to eat through your tooth enamel.
– Avoid sugary products, as sugar is known to convert into harmful acids in your mouth that are capable of causing enamel erosion.
– Limit sticky and chewy sweets in your diet, as they stick to the roof and teeth in your mouth and continue to do damage long after feasting. Try using sugarless gum to neutralize acids and wash harmful particles.
– Use dental tools that are reliable and effective for brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily. If you struggle to brush and floss effectively, use easier-to-operate dental tools such as electric toothbrushes and water flossers.
