Tooth Erosion (enamel erosion, dental erosion)

When acids contact the teeth it may eat away or soften the tooth. The teeth become translucent and the cusps of the teeth start to wear out. This can cause extreme sensitivity on the teeth to hot, cold and brushing.

Causes of tooth erosion:

Acidic foods and drinks

Eating disorders
Acid Reflux
Aggressive brushing

How to prevent tooth erosion:

Maintain a healthy diet.

Reduce the intake of acidic drinks or food.
Drink juices through a straw to minimize contact with teeth.
Do not sip on acidic drinks throughout the day Example: pop, juice, ice tea, sports drinks or wine.
Rinse mouth with water after acidic foods/drinks.
Use a soft or extra soft toothbrush and delay brushing for an hour after the intake of acidic foods/drinks.
