How to Prevent Acid Erosion

Acid erosion happens when acids found in certain foods and drinks weaken the enamel surfaces of your teeth, which are then much more easily worn away. Your body cannot replace this lost enamel, so it is important to know how you can care for it and protect it against acid erosion.

Here are some very simple steps you can take to protect your enamel from acid erosion, starting today:

Brush Clock

Brush for at least two minutes, twice a day. Most of us brush for only about 45 seconds. To get an idea of what two minutes actually feels like, set a timer or play a song while brushing your teeth.

Make sure you visit your dentist regularly.

You don’t need to give up acidic foods in your diet, particularly fruit, but take a fresh look at how you eat them. If you’re eating something acidic, have cheese, milk, or another non-acidic food or drink with it.

Use a straw when enjoying acidic drinks and don't swish them around or hold them in your mouth.

Try not to brush your teeth immediately after eating or drinking and make sure you’re using a soft-bristled toothbrush.
