Acidic erosion of teeth


• Frequent intake of acidic food or beverages such as fruit juice, sports drink, soft drink, yogurt, red wine, white wine and etc will erode the enamel surface of teeth.

• Acids in vomit will erode the teeth if a person frequently throws up.

• Pregnant women who frequently eat pickles, dried plums, and etc will put their teeth under acidic attack.

Consequences of acidic erosion of teeth

• After enamel is eroded, dentine will be exposed. This will cause tooth sensitivity, which lead to sharp pain when drinking or eating hot, cold, sour, and sweet food or beverages, or when the tooth is touched when brushing or flossing.

• If the acidic erosion is severe, the pulp will be affected and it will cause severe pain.


• If the condition is mild, the dentist will apply topical fluoride on the surface of the tooth. If the condition is severe, the dentist will place a filling or a crown to cover the entire tooth.

• Using desensitizing toothpaste can help relieve tooth sensitivity. You should first consult your dentist before using this kind of toothpaste.


• Avoid frequent intake of acidic food or beverages.

• Do not intentionally induce vomiting to lose weight. There are a lot of slimming methods, such as slimming exercising.
