Dr. Alin Alkass on Protecting Tooth Enamel

Tooth enamel is actually harder and more durable than bone. However, it can wear away over time, and once it’s gone, it doesn’t come back. To protect your dental enamel, Dr. Alin Alkass suggests ensuring that your teeth are getting adequate exposure to fluoride, avoiding excessive amounts of acidic foods and drinks, and seeing your dentist for treatment of dry mouth, if you have it. In addition, to avoid scratching or scraping your tooth enamel, avoid brushing your teeth excessively, aggressively, or just after eating acidic foods.
