What can damage tooth enamel?

Though it has a high resistance due to mineral content, enamel may still be affected. Experts say the acids produced by bacteria in plaque deposited on the teeth leads to lower pH and demineralization of tooth enamel. A slight demineralization may occur every time you eat or drink something acidic. Also, the enamel can break or crack and, unlike bone, enamel can not recover.
Cavities and sensitivity When the enamel is affected, in part, dentin, becomes vulnerable. Besides the high risk of caries, the tooth becomes sensitive to cold, hot or sweet.
How bacteria attack the enamel? Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar they consume food debris. This form acids that attack enamel. Also, the acids in soda or other carbonated beverages are harmful to teeth. Excessive consumption or over a long period can cause tooth erosion.
What causes damage to enamel? Digestive problems. Conditions such as bulimia, which causes vomiting or acid reflux may affect enamel. Enough stomach acid in your mouth has a corrosive effect on tooth enamel.
Dry mouth. Dry mouth is a symptom that often occurs when the saliva in the mouth decreases slightly or even drastically noticeable. This is not a disease, but may be a symptom of other illnesses. In this case, acids remain in the mouth for a longer period of time, affecting more the enamel. Typically, saliva neutralizes acids that cause dental erosion.
Bad habits. Never use your teeth to open a bottle, package or other containers. Risking to break or cracked enamel. Habits such as nail biting or breaking the seeds may have similar effects on enamel.
Bruxism. Bruxism is caused by stress and anxiety. Bruximul has several causes. Stress is one of the most important factors. And a reaction can be when teeth are not aligned and positioned correctly (occlusion disorders). Bruxism may be one of the symptoms of certain rare neuromuscular disease that affects the face. In rare cases, bruxism may be a reaction to medication for treating depression (Prozac, Zoloft or Paxil).
People with bruxism may damage their teeth, can lead to bluntness teeth enamel, dentine exposure and thus become sensitive teeth. Bruxism is associated with severe jaw problems, facial pain and headaches in the morning.
Children and enamel erosion. Number of children with dental problems is growing. Why? Experts now believe that children eat too many sweets and fizzy drinks.
Diet. The most dangerous foods are pickles and vinegar and that’s because of low pH.
And fruit consumption may affect your enamel. Due to a very low pH, lemons are considered most damaging fruit for your teeth. Followed by apples, oranges and grapefruit.
