Tupelo Dentist- Dr. John Kenney's "Your Dental Health" Segment- Dental Erosion
http://www.tupelosmiles.com/ http://tupelodentist.com Have you ever noticed right after drinking certain types of drinks or sucking on a lemon that your teeth feel almost gritty? More than likely you are experiencing dental erosion. Dental erosion is the dissolving of the surface enamel of teeth by acids found in soft drinks, carbonated beverages, fruit juices, sports drinks, and high energy drinks. The chemical erosion that we are talking about is not like tooth decay. It is actually the direct effect of acids attacking the outer enamel on the tooth's surface.
