Keep acid under control and protect your enamel with these simple tips

  1. Drink plenty of fluoridated tap water. It’s much better for your teeth than the bottle stuff. And cheaper, too!
  2. Only drink acidic beverages with main meals, so the effect of the drink is lessened by the presence of food.
  3. Limit your daily intake of fruit juice, soft drink and sports waters as well as herbal teas and alcohol.
  4. Use a soft toothbrush and brush your teeth twice a day, but not straight after eating or drinking.
  5. Chew sugar-free gum to encourage saliva in the mouth. It helps any softened enamel to remineralise and harden.
  6. Visit your dentist regularly. Tooth wear is an easily preventable problem if you have periodic dental check ups.
  • Do not use any sweet substances on your babies dummy (e.g. honey) as this can cause serious tooth decay.
