Details on the Ways to Protect Your Enamel

Posted .

Your enamel is strong and durable, but there are still things in the world today that can attack the enamel and even damage it. This is why it’s important to keep your enamel in tip-top shape. Keeping your enamel in tip-top shape can help you maintain strong and healthy teeth as well as a strong and healthy smile. To help you protect your enamel, Dr. Sula has some recommendations for you.

First, you should brush your teeth for two minutes twice each day. Doing so can wash away harmful particles that threaten to wear down your enamel. As you brush, please use a soft-bristled toothbrush. The soft bristles will clean the enamel as well as keep it in great condition. You should also use fluoride toothpaste. The fluoride will strengthen and nourish the enamel.

Second, you should floss your smile at least once a day with a flossing product of your choice. Flossing can help you remove the harmful substances that are stuck between the teeth threatening the enamel. As you floss, be gentle on the gums.

Third, stay away from sugary and acidic products as much as possible. Sugar and acid attack the enamel and wear it down. If you have to consume these things, it’s best to do so through a straw. If you eat or drink something acidic, please wait 30 minutes before you brush your teeth.
