Acid Reflux and Your Tooth Enamel
Acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), can damage tooth enamel. If you suffer from acid reflux, strong acids that normally remain in your stomach can move up into the mouth and attack tooth enamel.
– A doctor should investigate the problem and get the GERD condition under control first.
– Teeth can be restored and protected with veneers or tooth bonding.
– Dental crowns can be used to restore a badly damaged tooth.
Visit your dentist to find out more.
