How Acids Damage Your Gums
Posted on 5/25/2018 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
Acids when they are either sipped on or eaten over a longer period of time can actually harm your teeth much worse than eating or drinking the acidic item quickly. This is because it continues to wear down your teeth and eat away at them, especially soda. The sugar and acid combination will have a reaction on the outside of the teeth and gums that works to break down the enamel that is there to protect it. Acids and Your Oral HealthAcid is found in almost every food or drink that you can think of, except for water. You don't have to always choose bland food, but you should remember to rinse your mouth with water after eating or drinking any carbonated, sugary or acidic item. This will reduce the chances of having the food or drink, eat through the enamel on your teeth and ruining the gums. If you notice that your teeth are red, inflamed or irritated, then you may want to speak with us regarding your current diet and your oral hygiene routine. Both of these can greatly impact your oral health. This is why those foods with processed sugars and acids are not recommended. Your teeth and overall health do not need them, and they provide you with little to not actual benefit. It is also recommended that you wait at least 30 minutes before brushing since the abrasion from the brush can actually ruin the enamel further while it is weak. Come into our office and speak with us today to find out how we can work together to give you healthier teeth and gums. We can even help you identify which foods or beverages in your current diet are doing the most damage. Together, we can help protect your teeth, as well as your overall health....
