There Are Foods That Will Harm The Tooth Enamel
Among Them Are Acidic Foods Such As Citrus And Tomatoes
There are foods that could be harmful to the teeth. Known foods are sugar-based processed foods, candy, and sugary sodas, which promote the accumulation of plaque that lead to cavities and gum disease, if there is not a proper oral health. There are other foods that will create an acidic environment in the mouth, which softens and attacks the enamel if not cleaned, and increases the risk of teeth sensitivity. Among them are citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons, and the tomato sauce in pasta. This sauce is even more acidic if it is made from canned tomatoes. Picked and fermented foods re also acidic, but they promote gut health. Since these foods soften the tooth enamel, it is better to rinse the mouth after the meal, but wait 20 minutes to brush the teeth, because the enamel must be given time to harden. Other foods might cause cracks in the teeth, such as popcorn containing unpopped kernels, and chewing ice. People with fillings must be specially careful with these two foods.

The Sharp Pain In Your Teeth Or The Excess Sensitivity Can Be A Cavity
Learn To Identify All The Symptoms
Cavities are caused by the bacteria in the plaque, which attacks the tooth enamel. Improper brushing and flossing will leave plaque in certain areas, such as between the teeth, resulting in a cavity. The most common symptom is a toothache, which happens when the bacteria has drilled into the sensitive tooth areas, causing an inflammation. Another symptom is excess sensitivity with acidic, hot or cold foods. Worn tooth enamel exposes microscopic tubes, which allow nerve cells to be stimulated by these foods. Also, cavities can be detected visually, either as a hole in the teeth or as a different color. Check all the symptoms of cavities. More info click here.
Teeth Grinding Can Wear Out The Enamel And Even Affect The Tooth Support Bone
It Is Also Called Bruxism And Is Caused By Anxiety Or Stress
Teeth grinding, or bruxism is caused by stress, anxiety and even poor alignment. It has serious consequences because it wears the tooth enamel, and usually occurs at night, when we are asleep and not conscious. One of the signs is a waking up with a deep headache and a sore jaw. Worn-down enamel exposes the dentin, showing a change in the color of the teeth to orange or yellow. Also, exposed dentin increases teeth sensitivity. Another issue is the risk of cracking the enamel and also affecting the bone that supports the tooth, along with the bone. The jaw muscles and the temporomandibular joint also suffer from the repetitive grinding. Additional details click here.
