Tooth enamel, the outermost layer of the tooth, is one of the hardest substances in the body. But, it can be
permanently damaged by acids in our daily diets if if we don’t work to strengthen and protect it. Everyone should know how to help protect their teeth from the effects of acid erosion. Many of the foods and drinks found in our modern diets—including the healthy ones like citrus fruits and berries, are very acidic and can strip away tooth enamel. But, you can continue eating the healthy foods you love while also helping to strengthen and protect your enamel by following a few, simple tips. Try to avoid brushing your teeth immediately after eating. Your enamel is softest right after an acidic meal, so waiting at least 30 minutes before brushing will give your saliva time to release minerals back into your enamel.
Also, try not to swish around acidic drinks, like citrus juices, in your mouth. This prolongs the acid contact with your teeth. Instead, drink through a straw.
Take a look at how you eat. Instead of eliminating healthy, acidic foods like berries from your diet, try pairing them with cheese or milk to help neutralize the acids. Also, drink plenty of plain, uncarbonated water. It washes away any food that might be trapped in your teeth and helps clear off acidic film. Brush with an enamel-strengthening toothpaste, like Pronamel®. It is specially designed to help protect enamel from the effects of acid erosion. With an optimized fluoride formulation, Pronamel® actively strengthens weakened enamel and helps prevent enamel from eroding further. Finally, visit your dentist regularly. Going to the dentist every six months for a routine exam and cleaning can help protect your teeth. Maintaining great oral care is something you can work toward every day. Just a few small changes to your diet and your daily oral care routine can help strengthen and protect your enamel from the effects of acid erosion.

  1. Tooth enamel does grow back. I had an attack on the back lower part of my front tooth on my lower jaw.
    Eventually I learned it was a huge tar tar build up. I scratched the majority of it off with my mu finger nail. THen I bought dentist picks off ebay to finish removing the tar tar that was in between some teeth. After cleaning it all off it was rough and felt strange as one of my front lower jaw teeth is crooked also. This is probably the reason for the attack. Some enamel also broke off at the gum line, this was probably less then half a mill thick. Tooth enamel is over two mill thick so I had not reached the dentin, this is the nervous part inside the tooth. I did have a dent at the base of my tooth which a dentist calls a cavity.
    I decided to leave this as it does not hurt, in doing so the cavity has filled in with enamel. If a filing was applied this would not have happened. The entire area has now smoothed over and my crooked tooth, which has the cavity now feels thicker. It almost feels like a wound has healed. I did not stop eating any of the foods the dentist sites said dont eat as those foods increase healthy saliva which in turn increases healthy teeth. My teeth feel strong and are not sensitive.
