At dental school we placed a tooth in a glass of coke and when we came back the next morning, the tooth had dissolved!
Acid erosion is a common problem we face when seeing our dental patients.
Even worse for erosion are the diet drinks. Since they have no or little sugar the acid is more concentrated.
We have recently seen an increase in the number of tooth erosion cases in the last few months. One of the main causes is an acidic diet. This will consists of fizzy diet drinks, yogurts and acidic fruits.
Prevention is key here. We recommend:
1.Get your teeth checked by your dentist for early signs of erosion
2.Never brush your teeth immediately after anything acidic
3.Neutralise the acid by using a fluoride mouthwash
