And yet it seems like the tiniest thing that breaks through this super strong shield: ACID.
The sources of these acids? The first we think of is bacteria, which adhere to your tooth enamel and feed off the sugars in your mouth, producing acid.
Other sources include acidic drinks and foods, with SODA as a big offender. Even sugar free soda is acidic and will erode the enamel on your teeth.
What is the antidote? Reduce intake of soda and other acidic or sugary foods and drinks. Eat and drink more foods high in Calcium. Rinse your mouth with water if you can't brush, and even better, brush your teeth soon after eating or drinking. And visit your dentist regularly so that you catch any issues early.
At Creedmoor Family Dentistry, we care about your teeth and want you to preserve them for your lifetime.
