What is Enamel?
Enamel is a thin outer covering of the tooth that protects the teeth from daily use such as chewing, biting, crunching, and grinding. Tooth enamel is actually the hardest tissue in the human body. Although enamel is a great protector of the teeth it can chip, crack and even erode.
Tooth erosion occurs when acids wear away the enamel on teeth. Enamel erosion can be caused by things that are consumed everyday like soft drinks, fruit drinks, and even coffee. Dry Mouth or low salivary flow can also cause enamel erosion.
A fluoride mouthwash is a great way to help protect teeth from enamel erosion and decay. When a tooth’s surface is weakened by decay, fluoride can be absorbed into the weakened tooth surfaces to help strengthen the enamel. Amazingly, the new tooth material created by this strengthening process is even more durable than the original.
