More common than ever before tooth erosion occurs when tooth enamel is dissolved by acid, causing sensitivity, yellowing and pitted or worn teeth.
Many foods and beverages are to blame - juice, sports drinks and carbonated drinks and citrus fruits.
What to do to protect your tooth's enamel?
- Avoid sugary and acidic drinks or use a straw to reduce contact with the teeth
- Finish meals with an neutralizing glass of milk or piece of cheese
- After consuming anything acidic wait one hour before brushing
