Three steps to preventing dental erosion
- Choose drinks that are low in acid. Carbonated soft drinks are high in acid, which can harm your teeth
- Do not swish or hold high acid drinks in your mouth for long periods of time or suck on citrus fruits
- It is best to consume foods and drinks high in acid at the end of mealtime while there is still plenty of saliva in your mouth to wash away sugars and acids
As part of a healthy lifestyle, practice good oral hygiene and have your mouth examined regularly by a dentist. If you have any questions please contact us!
