Better Smiles Begin by Preventing Dental Erosion

Posted .

Are you aware of all the risk factors associated with dental erosion? Oftentimes, individuals are too focused on other aspects of their health to think about keeping her mouth clean. Anything you put in your mouth has the potential to damage your smile and introduce harmful bacteria.

The best way to prevent dental erosion is to keep your mouth clean. This includes brushing twice every day and flossing once a day as well. If possible, you should brush 30 minutes after every meal. Saliva production is essential for limiting dental erosion for having a healthy mouth. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, which also have a high water content are great at stimulating saliva production. Studies have shown that by chewing sugarless gum after meals, you can help produce additional saliva in your mouth.
