About Acid Erosion

A Condition Caused by Loss of Tooth Enamel

Did you know that many of the foods and drinks that we enjoy as part of a modern diet - including soft drinks, fruit juices, wine, flavored iced teas, certain fruits and vegetables, and balsamic vinegar - contain acids that can soften and wear away tooth enamel?

Once the enamel is gone, it is gone forever

This condition, commonly known as "Acid Wear" or "Acid Erosion," can result in tooth pain, discolored or yellow teeth or the appearance of transparent, thinning teeth if left untreated. This is due to loss of enamel from the surface of the tooth. Once the enamel is gone, it's gone for good. Since the early signs are often hard to spot and can only be seen by your dentist, the best policy is early, proactive prevention, including regular checkups by your dentist.
