Causes of tooth enamel erosion

Enamel erosion process is frequently unnoticed and happens to everyone at all ages, making teeth increasingly vulnerable.

All food and drinks affect the natural pH level in the mouth which may cause acid attacks and enamel erosion.

One of the major misconceptions is that acid erosion occurs only due to unhealthy diets such as sugary drinks and junk food. In fact, modern diets including food and drink such as apples, orange juice and vinegar or red wine have worsened this phenomenon.
