How to Protect Tooth Enamel?

Having a good dentition is a sign of good health and also guarantees you a beautiful smile! It is therefore essential to take care of the enamel of your teeth which constitutes the protective shell.

What is enamel?

Enamel is the outermost and most visible part of the tooth. It is the hardest substance in the body since it is made of calcium and is harder than bone. The enamel has the function of protecting the tooth against external aggressions. Although it is very resistant naturally, it can however deteriorate and become brittle if it is the subject of frequent attacks and is not itself protected against these attacks.

What should I protect the enamel?

Acidic foods are the first sources of aggression of enamel. In recent decades, eating habits have changed, with a considerable increase in the consumption of acidic foods. For example, soft drinks taken outside mealtimes, vinegar, and wine are very acidic. On the other hand, sugary foods, especially gelatinous candies, leave particles sticking to the teeth, which prevents saliva from neutralizing the acid.

Poor dental hygiene can also be an attack on the enamel. Too vigorous brushing with a hard bristle toothbrush may cause mechanical wear. When you brush your teeth badly, the formation of tartar will promote the appearance of periodontal diseases. The use of an electric toothbrush after active mouthwash like Icy Fresh Mint allows the elimination of the plaque responsible for the formation of tartar while respecting the email of your teeth.

To a lesser extent, erosion of enamel can come from the grinding of teeth during sleep. The teeth rub together and the enamel thins.

How to protect enamel?

Erosion of the enamel is manifested by hypersensitivity of the teeth in contact with hot and cold temperatures from the food and drinks consumed. To protect the enamel, it is necessary above all to adopt a healthy diet. It is recommended to avoid snacking on sweets during the day and to reduce the consumption of very sweet foods. When drinking acidic or carbonated beverages, it is advisable to use a straw to prevent contact of the drink with the enamel. It is also advisable to drink a glass of milk or water after swallowing a fruit. Thanks to its high calcium content, milk help strengthen the enamel.

Daily brushing with a fluoride toothpaste remineralizes the enamel and increases its resistance to acids. And for a gentle brushing, you can use an electric toothbrush and brushes suitable for sensitive teeth and gums. Indeed, it is not necessary with this type of toothbrush to rub or exert pressure to obtain an optimal result.

Dentists also recommend chewing sugar-free chewing gums because they cause tripling of saliva production and can restore normal acidity in the mouth. Finally, always brush your teeth after consuming acidic foods such as citrus, asparagus, tomato, rhubarb, honey and fruit juice.

As soon as you feel that your teeth become sensitive to heat or cold food, do not hesitate to go to the dentist.
