How To Prevent Tooth Erosion

Posted on 6/20/2022 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
How To Prevent Tooth ErosionTooth corrosion occurs when acids in the mouth react with enamel. This process is irreversible and causes permanent damage to your teeth. The sensitive inner parts of the teeth are exposed as a result of tooth erosion, causing pain and discomfort. Our clinic places a strong emphasis on teaching you how to properly care for and maintain your teeth.

Consume a balanced diet.

Consuming fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, such as mangoes, will help keep your gums and teeth clean. Crunchy foods, such as carrots, will also aid in the cleaning of your teeth. The calcium in milk aids in the rebuilding and maintenance of the enamel. Minerals found in your food, such as phosphorous, will aid in the protection of the enamel. Sugarless chewing gums should be used instead of sugary chewing gums because they produce a lot of saliva. The saliva produced is used to remove food particles from the surfaces of your teeth. Consume plenty of water to keep your mouth hydrated and your saliva level stable.

Practice good oral hygiene.

Brushing your teeth after meals helps remove food particles on the surface and between your teeth. We recommend using fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles to avoid damaging your gums. Fluoride is known to protect enamel; additionally, floss between your teeth and rinse with fluoride-containing mouthwash on a daily basis.

Frequent dental visits

Our dentists are trained to help you avoid potential dental problems by teaching you different brushing and flossing techniques. We can also help you thoroughly clean your teeth by using our professional dental tools, which can reach every part of your teeth, including those that are not accessible by brushing or flossing. For more information on tooth erosion, please contact us and one of our qualified dentists will be happy to assist.
