Dental erosion refers to loss of enamel from exposure to excess acid.

This can arise from:

  • Dietary factors – soft drinks, sport drinks, citrus juices
  • Morning sickness over a long period exposing teeth to stomach acids
  • Gastric reflux – particularly at night
  • Medications – some medicines cause dry mouth issues, which predisposes enamel loss
  • Some systemic illnesses

Any loss of structure is a matter for concern. It is necessary to determine why the problem exists, and provide a solution.

Untreated, it can cause sensitivity, cosmetic issues (darkening, staining, altered shapes), and if severe can reach the nerve and create a need for root canal treatment.

We have dedicated dental team whose primary concern is your welfare and health.
