Eating too much sugar can cause tooth decay. But even if you have healthy
eating habits and brush frequently, you can still be at
risk of dental erosion.
Prolonged exposure of the teeth to an acidic environment can dissolve or eat away the enamel surface of the teeth.
This can occur when acidic drinks are sipped over a prolonged period of time, rather than consumed with a meal. With prolonged exposure to acids, faster tooth wear occurs. Sometimes erosion results in the soft inner part of the tooth being exposed which can cause sensitivity.
