Best oral care tips come from your dentist near Pickering

Cavities and gum disease are the two primary dental problems for which people visit their dentist. The hope is that decay and disease can be prevented. Sometimes, however, there is a need to repair a tooth or teeth damaged by oral bacteria. While there is a focus on the prevention of cavities and gum disease through adequate oral hygiene including brushing and flossing, there is a newly recognized dental problem for which the best oral care tips come from your dentist near Pickering. In addition to decay and other damage, today’s dental patients are susceptible to the erosion of enamel.

Dr. Amir Awadalla at Esquire Dental Center, Providing Best Oral Care

Tooth erosion is something that may be mistaken as decay. Erosion, however, is a different problem entirely. When erosion occurs, it affects the entire tooth structure, wearing teeth down long before their time. Enamel is extremely hard, but not indestructible. In addition to oral bacteria, which cause cavities, acidity in the mouth is immensely damaging to enamel.

Oral acidity, and even acidity throughout the body, is a common problem faced by millions of people. In the mouth, a balanced pH between alkaline and acid is extremely important to one’s level of oral health. Brushing and flossing are, in part, recommended as a way to minimize acidity through their reduction of oral bacteria. Brushing and flossing also reduce acidity through the removal of food debris.

Over the past few decades, erosion of enamel has become more prevalent due to the amount of acidic beverages consumed today. Energy drinks have been found particularly damaging to teeth. If not properly handled, erosion can cause vulnerability to fractures and other issues. At Esquire Dental Centres, we do all that we can to minimize our patients’ risk for erosion and various other dental problems, providing preventive dental treatments and education for hygiene.
