Dental erosion

In recent years dentists have started to notice more and more cases of dental erosion. Dental erosion is when the enamel on your teeth wears away, usually from frequent exposure to strong acids. If you regularly drink acidic drinks—like sports drinks or fruit juices—or take certain medicines that have a side effect of wearing away enamel, you may suffer from dental erosion.

The first step in treating erosion involves talking to your dentist about what causes it, and how you can address that in your life. It may mean giving up smoking, or limiting your intake of acidic foods and drinks.
