Dental erosion: The causes

Gastroesophageal reflux can cause an acid attack of teeth, particularly molars (bottom teeth). There is then a demineralization of these teeth.

But dental erosion may be due to external factors, such as too acidic food with sodas buses too large.

Attention to some citrus fruits: lemons, oranges, grapefruit ... These fruits are very good for health, a little less for that of teeth (because of their acidity) under certain conditions. For example, it is advisable, for example, to avoid rubbing your teeth every night with lemon just before going to bed.

Alcohol can also promote tooth erosion. A large consumption of vinaigrette may also be discouraged.

Beware of certain medications that decrease the secretion of saliva. Because the latter tends to neutralize oral hyperacidity. Thus psychotropic drugs causing a decrease in saliva can facilitate the occurrence of dental erosion.

Very frequent intake of effervescent (acidic) tablets may also promote tooth erosion.

People with anorexia or bulimia can also have this type of disorder. Repeated (very acidic) vomiting may eventually attack tooth enamel.
