Super Smiles Have Strong Enamel

Dallas dental financing

Did you know that enamel is the hardest substance in the body? It’s true! Your tooth enamel should last a lifetime, and with regular checkups at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, it can.

Here are some useful tips for keeping enamel healthy.

1. Pick the right foods for enamel health. It’s no secret that soft drinks are bad for your teeth. Don’t think that diet sodas are harmless – the artificial sweeteners can also erode enamel over time. There are also other culinary culprits that can do a lot of harm. Sticky, chewy candies should be avoided. Chewing ice is a no-no. And don’t use your teeth as tools. Take a minute to grab some scissors before you rip open that package with your incisors.

On the flip side, foods with calcium can neutralize acid in your mouth and protect your enamel. So, enjoy your dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt!

2. Avoid vigorous brushing and use a soft brush. Also, it’s best to brush about an hour after eating, because foods, especially acidic ones, can soften the enamel, thus making it more prone to weakening from brushing.

3. Keep stomach acids in check. If you have a problem with severe heartburn, the stomach acid could be traveling up your esophagus and into your mouth. This acid can erode enamel, so it is vital to speak with your Dallas doctor about treatment.

4. Talk to us about dry mouth and tooth grinding. Lack of saliva is a major trouble for tooth enamel, and it’s no surprise that teeth grinding can also wear it down. Make sure your dentist is aware if you experience either of these issues.
