Why Does Tooth Enamel Get Eroded?
Your tooth enamel is built to withstand the pressure of chewing for many years. However, it can get damaged and result in cavities. So how can the tooth enamel get damaged?
- Ineffective tooth brushing can cause plaque to build up and damage your enamel.
- Brushing your teeth harshly can also damage your tooth enamel and lead to sensitivity.
- Eating sugary foods and acid reflux can also erode your tooth enamel.
Brush your teeth at least twice daily, floss daily — and visit your dentist every six months to prevent cavities and other oral problems.
