Tooth Erosion and You

Posted Jul 01 2009 6:44pm

There are several things that you’ll need to watch for when it comes to tooth erosion. No matter how good your dental care plan is and how diligently you look after you teeth, tooth erosion can work away at your teeth regardless of what you do to try and stop it.

Tooth erosion usually shows itself as a sensitivity. Either very hot or cold food or drinks can make you a little edgy, but lesser forms of this problem run all the way to a simple discoloration. While tooth erosion can be a serious problem, there are things that can be done about it and most of these preventative measures are quite simple. First off the experts suggest that you learn to rinse your mouth with water after you eat to neutralize the acid that’s present in many foods.

As well, it’s a good idea if you wait for at least one hour after eating or drinking acidic foods as part of your dental care routine. This allows your teeth to remineralize. It’s important to remember that exposure to these acidic foods can harm your teeth and lead to tooth erosion.
