Protect Your Tooth Enamel From Erosion!

Protect Your Tooth Enamel From Erosion!

Tooth enamel, what is it and why protect it from erosion.Just because your teeth’s enamel is tough doesn’t mean you don’t need to protect it from erosion.

What Is Tooth Enamel?

The white looking outer covering on your teeth is enamel. Did you know this protective shell that covers your teeth is the hardest tissue in the human body?

What Does Tooth Enamel Do?

Not only does tooth enamel protect your teeth from daily wear and tear, it also protects your teeth from sensitivity to hot and cold. It may be the hardest tissue in the human body but it can still chip or crack. It’s so important to protect your teeth’s enamel from injury and erosion because it can only remineralize to a certain degree. If it becomes damaged in any way, see your dentist right away so he can mend it.
