What Causes Acid Wear?

What Causes
Acid Wear?

Having an acid-rich diet that can put our teeth at risk is much easier than you’d expect. As few as four acidic “exposures” throughout the day can put enamel at risk from Acid Wear also known as Acid Erosion.

What counts toward those daily acidic exposures? Surprisingly, some of our healthier choices like fruit, fruit juices, sparkling water with lemon and even salad dressings. Which means we could very easily be putting our enamel at risk at least four times a day.

But let’s not change our healthy diets. Let’s make sure we’re protecting our precious enamel. In addition to using a toothpaste like Pronamel® there are plenty of things you can do to prevent Acid Wear. Click here to learn more.

Remember, loss of tooth enamel cannot be reversed. So if you do nothing to protect your teeth from ongoing Acid Wear, it could lead to more serious dental problems.
