Can Toothpaste Cause Teeth Erosion?

Studies show that by brushing your teeth more than twice daily, you are eroding your enamel. If left untreated, the erosion exposes dentin, resulting in sensitivity to hot and cold foods and discolouration. Here’s more.

Main takeaways:

– Research done in Switzerland indicates that toothpaste alone does not prevent enamel surface loss.

– The abrasive properties found in some toothpastes – combined with aggressive brushing – can erode the enamel.

– You are advised to use soft-bristled or electric toothbrushes and only brush twice daily.

Visit the dentist for treatment and cleaning. Also eat fresh fruits instead of sugary snacks.
