Tooth erosion happens when the enamel is destroyed by chemicals found in food and bodily fluids. Enamel is the hardest part of the body and its main function is to protect the delicate underneath part of the tooth. When this surface is exposed to a lot of acidic food, it becomes prone to tear and wear which is called enamel/tooth erosion. When this happens, a hollow might develop on the tooth exposing the underneath sensitive part of the tooth. This results to serious sensitivity to acidic, cold and hot foods and not to mention the hollow that creates a ground for bacteria infection if tooth erosion treatment is not administered. Below are some tooth erosion treatment options. You can view more about this online.
