Explaining Tooth Enamel Erosion

Your tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but once it’s gone, it’s gone. Enamel disappears in response to erosion, and when it occurs, you may find yourself at the dentist complaining of sensitive teeth and dealing with an increase in tooth decay.

Watch this video to learn more about tooth enamel erosion. Erosion occurs when your teeth are exposed to acidic substances, such as soda and sports drinks, that wear away the enamel. When the enamel is gone, your teeth will be more sensitive and more susceptible to bacteria.

Your dentist at Glenwood Premier Dental can help you understand healthy habits to protect your teeth and gums. Make an appointment for a teeth cleaning in Hazlet by calling (732) 497-3265.
