How to spot if you have tooth erosion

One of the most common oral issues people experience due to bad habits is tooth erosion. A main reason is because most people do not know what can cause tooth erosion, what the symptoms are, and what preventative measures they can take.

  • Bad dental hygiene
  • Drinking fizzy, acidic, or sugary drinks
  • Eating acidic foods

  • Yellow or brown teeth
  • Pain in the nerve or bone
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Tooth decay

There are several preventative measures you can take to avoid tooth erosion such as avoiding to consume acidic, sugary, foods or drinks too often, brushing your teeth regularly, and eating foods that reinforce the enamel of your teeth.
