When the enamel on your teeth erodes, it can cause tooth sensitivity and cavities can develop. In addition, teeth will appear discoloured once the protective outer layer of enamel disappears. It's really important to maintain tooth enamel because our bodies do not replace it once it has gone.

Key takeaways:

  •  Brush teeth gently with a soft bristled toothbrush in order to avoid damaging enamel and gums by aggressive brushing.
  •  Reduce your sugar intake because a high sugar diet increases the risk of enamel erosion; keep hydrated with water where possible.
  •  Brush twice a day and floss regularly to remove plaque and debris from your teeth.

See your dentist for regular check-ups and professional dental cleaning in order to keep your tooth enamel healthy for as long as possible. Remember, once your tooth enamel has gone, it's not going to be replaced.
