How acids affect our teeth

We all know that acid has a detrimental effect on our teeth but many of us don’t realise
just how awful this can be or where that acid is coming from. We lose this protective
layer because acid essentially wears down the enamel on our teeth. Teeth may become
excruciatingly sensitive and discolored as a result, and it is challenging to stop this
process once it has started. It’s not always just the food and drink we consume that
affects how acid affects our teeth; sometimes it’s also how we consume it.
At its most basic level, tooth erosion occurs when the dental enamel is compromised,
causing harm to the tooth’s structural integrity. Your teeth’s enamel, a thick protective
layer that aids in maintaining their structure, becomes visible when it is worn away,
revealing the tooth’s dentin, the core tissue that gives teeth their discolored appearance.
Your regular intake of food and drink will decide how much acid your teeth are exposed
to. Acid is a major factor in the erosion of tooth enamel. Due to the fact that stomach
acids can harm teeth, those with conditions like acid reflux or bulimia may also have
more tooth erosion.
All foods and beverages include some amount of acid, although some are worse than
others, such as all carbonated drinks, wine, fruit juice, coffee, cocoa, fruit, honey,
yoghurt, and pickles in vinegar.
