Warning about acids and dental health
Updated: 12/17/2008 6:00:25 PM
 

Warning about acids and dental health Acids are in many of the foods and drinks that people expose their teeth to every day, but too much interaction with these acids can pose a risk to your dental health, an expert is warning.

Speaking to WTVQ TV in Lexington, Kentucky, dental researcher Bennett Amaechi explained how exposing your teeth to soda and citrus fruits on a regular basis can lead to dental erosion.

Usually, the body utilizes its store of calcium to remineralize teeth, but when exposure is continually high the enamel can slowly wear away without being repaired.

When teeth are eroded, they may become sensitive, as well as taking on a yellowish color and developing tiny imperfections. At a late stage, these teeth may require extensive repair, such as veneers or crowns.

Amaechi recommends parents help their children improve their dental health and protect against erosion by limiting their consumption of soda and fruit juices, emphasizing that frequency of exposure is more important to watch than overall intake.

Using a straw when drinking a soft drink can also help prevent the dental health problem, as it keeps acids away from the tooth enamel.
