Loss of tooth structure caused by acid exposure eroding the enamel.
- acid reflux
, bulimia, GERD and frequent vomiting
Extrinsic – frequent consumption of foods and beverages with high acidic content. Check out the acidity
levels of common items
Rough ridges or ledges on surfaces of enamel
Cupping or divots on occlusal surfaces
Incisal edges of the teeth
become grooved and chipped
, exposing underlying dentin
chipping on the teeth
, which may appear darker/more yellow as dentin is exposed
The key here is prevention and management. Keep the acidity level of your mouth as close to neutral as possible by minimizing length and frequency of exposure with any acidic drinks and foods.
Identify your risk factors.
Avoid or reduce frequent
intake of acidic beverages
Use a straw when drinking to minimize acid contact with tooth surfaces.
Select beverages containing calcium,
phosphate or fluoride
, and rinse with water or drink milk after acid exposure in order to lessen erosive attacks.
Use dentifrices with a high fluoride concentration to strengthen enamel surfaces and low abrasiveness levels: MI paste,
, Sensodyne Pronamel toothpastes.
Avoid tooth brushing immediately after acid exposure; wait at least 30 minutes to allow the tooth surface recovery from acid attacks.
If you think you may suffer from acid reflux,
bulimia or GERD
, see your primary care physician for diagnosis and treatment options.
