Protecting your smile from the risk of dental erosion includes making sure you understand the causes of dental erosion and what you can do to treat it. Once you aware of the risk factors in your life, it is important to help target and eliminate them and implement the necessary oral health care and hygiene routines to improve your all smile.
To keep your smile safe from the risk of dental erosion, it is important to be aware of the causes. Acid reflux disease, medications that produce dry mouth as a side effect, and the excessive consumption of fruit drinks and soft drinks can contribute to dental erosion. In order to protect your smile, it is important to limit these causes and avoid harmful products whenever possible.
Due to the risk that harmful acids impose on your teeth and gums, it is important to make sure you’re brushing and flossing every day and washing out your mouth as much as possible. This includes the use of chewing sugarless gum after meals to help neutralize acids in your mouth and rinse away any debris left behind.
