Enamel Loss- Ways To Fix It!

Enamel loss is nothing but tooth-enamel erosion, and this is quite a pathetic kind of oral condition. If the eroded enamel does not get restored, then your oral condition will get deteriorated to a great extent. 
Teeth enamel plays the most important role in protecting teeth and if this layer gets eroded, then your teeth will get heavily damaged. Your teeth will not only get eroded, but the real dental color will also get changed. 

Why enamel erosion occurs? 

-  Drinking excessive hot or cold: your enamel is very much sensitive to hot or cold food items as a result of which email loss is invited. 

-  Having fruit drinks: Citric acid in the fruit drinks is the element that can cause enamel erosion.

-  Sugary diet: Excessive sugary diet is the very prominent cause of this kind of dental condition, and  thus you should take more and more of non-sugary foods.

-  Environmental factors: There are many environmental factors that are responsible for enamel loss, and they are corrosion, stress, tear, wear, friction and others.

What are the leading treatments for restoring enamel loss?

-  Using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash: There are many talented dentists who are strongly recommending the usage of both fluoride mouthwash and toothpaste so that tooth decay can be easily prevented. These products are now commercially available over-the-counter. 

-  Routine dental check-up: Daily dental check-up is needed so that oral condition can be checked so that the causes and signs of enamel loss can be detected, and then only perfect treatments can be easily applied.
