What is
dental
erosion?
THE ANSWER COLUMN
Acids can erode the outside tooth
covering called enamel even though it
is very tough. This process is called
dental erosion.
Common sources of acids that
affect the teeth include acidic foods,
acid refl ux and vomiting.
Acidic foods can include some fruits
like lemons, soda drinks, and sport
drinks.
People with acid refl ux have
stomach acids that frequently reach the
mouth.
Repeated vomiting will put you at
risk for erosion for the same reason.
Some signs of erosion are pits in the
teeth on the biting surfaces and
thinning of the enamel on the tongue
side, especially on the front teeth.
When a lot of enamel is lost the
dentin is exposed which may change
how the teeth look and cause sensitivity.
Once enamel is lost, it cannot be
regrown. There are ways to stop
erosion.
Avoid frequent eating or drinking of
acidic foods. Drink milk or water for
meals. Rinse your mouth with water or
milk after vomiting eating acidic foods
or drinking acidic beverages. Don’t
swish or hold acidic beverages or food
in your mouth.
Wait at least an hour after an acidic
event to brush your teeth to minimize
loss of enamel.
Chew sugar free gum which
increases saliva fl ow and buffers the
acids in the mouth.
Use a soft brush and fl uoride
toothpaste for brushing.
Talk to your dental professional if
you think that you may have erosion.
