Is Tooth Enamel Restorable?

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS
Is Tooth Enamel Restorable?Enamel is a substance that works as a strong barrier for your teeth, protecting the inner layers from the effects of acids, plaque, and hot and cold substances. It is one of the most challenging tissues in your body, but like bones, the lost area can never be replaced once the enamel is gone. But, if it has gotten weaker, it may be repaired. Some things that can cause enamel erosion are acidic drinks, starches and sugars, medical conditions such as gastrointestinal problems, dry mouth, and acid reflux disease, wear and tear, teeth grinding, and poor oral hygiene.

Spotting Tooth Erosion

Early treatment of tooth decay is essential before it gets worse and your teeth start to chip, crack, break, or become loose. Some symptoms to look out for are tooth sensitivity, yellow teeth, uneven edges, increased tooth decay, tooth fracturing, and bad breath. Because your body cannot produce new enamel, your focus should reinforce and restore the enamel you already have. Maintaining regular dental hygiene is one of the most effective strategies to rebuild your tooth enamel. To help prevent your teeth' enamel from becoming eroded, you should brush and floss your teeth every day and after every meal. Try not to consume too many snacks, sugars, and acidic foods. Avoid using toothpaste and mouthwashes that include alcohol in the ingredients. Avoid grinding your teeth and clenching your jaw. To maintain a steady saliva flow and protect your teeth' enamel, chew sugar-free gum. Also, make sure you visit your dentist a minimum of two times per year and have regular appointments.
