How Acid Erosion Affects You

How to Prevent
Acid Erosion

Here are some very simple steps we can all take to start
protecting our enamel from Acid Erosion, starting today:

How to Prevent Acid Erosion
  1. Make an appointment to see your dentist if you haven’t been in the past 6 months.
  2. Don’t give up the healthy food in your diet, particularly fruit, but take a fresh look at how you eat it. If you’re eating something acidic, have cheese, milk, or another non-acidic food or drink with them.
  3. Don’t swish, swirl or hold acidic drinks in your mouth for too long.
  4. Many drinks, especially carbonated ones, can contribute to Acid Erosion. Try drinking through a straw or substituting the carbonated drink with water or milk.
  5. Try not to brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking and make sure you’re using a soft-bristled brush.
  6. Consider using a mouthwash along with a fluoride paste to give you extra protection from the effects of everyday acids.
  7. Use Sensodyne® ProNamel® toothpaste as your daily fluoride toothpaste. It has been specifically designed to help protect tooth enamel against the effects of acid erosion.
