Citric Acid and Tooth Enamel
I can see the damage and it isn't pretty. Here are some suggestions to help decrease the erosion short of completely eliminating these favorites, although that is indeed the best choice:
1) Rinse one's mouth with water after drinking soda.
2) Only drink water at and during bedtime.
3) Drink soda with meals only to reduce exposure to teeth.
4) Drink soda through a straw, again to reduce direct contact with teeth.
5) Brush, brush, brush!
If you have other suggestions for protecting from tooth erosion, please post here. Thanks!
