With its vinegar component, salad dressing is an acid attack waiting to happen. Add fibrous vegetables or unsweetened cacao nibs to your salad. These crunchy foods will help promote saliva production and protect your tooth enamel.

 

Drink Juice With Yogurt

Fruit juice contains the flavor but lacks the fiber of whole fruit. So what you’re left with is a lot of condensed acid and sugar, which promotes enamel erosion. Mix your fruit juice with plain yogurt and make a smoothie to neutralize the acidity.

 

Pair Wine With Cheese

Red and white wines are highly acidic, so pair your wine with cheese to counteract the oncoming acid attack. The calcium in cheese limits the increase in acidity and promotes remineralization of tooth enamel.

Soft drinks (including diet drinks) are basically acid-baths for your teeth. To protect your tooth enamel against erosion, follow up your soft drink with sugar-free (xylitol-sweetened) gum. This stimulates saliva production, which helps remineralize tooth enamel.
