The mineral density of your tooth enamel plays an important role in the strength of your teeth, as well as helping to prevent cavities, and prevent problems with tooth sensitivity. When your tooth enamel suffers from demineralization, you can be at increased risk of suffering a myriad of other dental health conditions.
Your tooth enamel can be weakened by several different factors. This could be associated with a single problem or multiple contributing factors.
An inconsistent or inadequate daily oral hygiene routine can cause plaque and plaque acids to build up in your mouth. This acidic environment can easily contribute to tooth enamel erosion.
It’s also worth noting that the frequent consumption of acidic beverages can also contribute to tooth enamel erosion. Teeth that are only modestly compromised by poor oral hygiene complications can be significantly affected in this way.
Chronic problems with an eating disorder such as bulimia or anorexia can also exacerbate the demineralization process of your tooth enamel.
There are a few different ways to deal with enamel erosion. Improving your daily oral hygiene routine, cutting down on acidic beverages and seeking treatment for any latent eating disorder issues will certainly help.
Brushing your teeth with a toothpaste that includes added fluoride will certainly help. Fluoride has the special ability to gradually remineralize eroded tooth enamel.
One fast and efficient method for bolstering the mineral density of your teeth is to have Dr. Matilde Castellini administer a simple fluoride treatment at the end of your routine dental checkup.
