Are you familiar with the effects of enamel erosion? Enamel erosion is a condition in which the tooth enamel is slowly worn down by harmful acids. Because your tooth enamel is only a thin layer that provides protection for the inner workings of the tooth, it is important to make sure it is always kept safe and strong so that you can avoid an infection or the loss of the tooth.

It is important to be aware of the various causes of enamel erosion. If you routinely suffer from dry mouth, you should see Dr. Ellen Nam for treatment to prevent oral health risks such as enamel erosion or gum disease. Dry mouth is a condition in which your body is not producing enough saliva to help wash away acids that can damage your teeth and gums, You should also talk to our dentist about the medications you are taking or environmental factors that may be affecting your smile. If you are suffering from enamel erosion, you’ll need to improve your diet, and your oral hygiene routine and visit your dentist for professional cleanings.
