Here’s a 3 minutes and 17 seconds Tooth Enamel Erosion: 7 Types of Foods that Damage Tooth Enamel video. See full transcript below.
The dental enamel is the hard outer layer that safeguards the sensitive inner sections of your teeth. Though the tooth enamel is known to be the hardest tissue in the human body, it’s still not invulnerable to damage. It can be stained easily due to its translucence. You might be unaware of it, but some foods not only discolour your teeth since, at the same time, they can also erode the enamel. Once the tooth enamel is worn away, the damaged will be permanent given that the cells are unable to restore themselves.
You can’t always stay away from enamel-eroding foods, but following simple tips from your dentist that help reduce dental erosion can surely save your teeth. In addition, there are some things you also need to consider aside from the acidic foods you eat. Pick for a soft toothbrush and avoid brushing too hard. Use toothpaste that contains fluoride including mouthwash. If you have medical conditions such as bulimia, alcoholism of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), tell your dentist. Treating these ailments helps reduce tooth enamel erosion.
If you have a tooth enamel loss, there are ways to repair it. The best solution varies on your situation.
