Things You Can Do to Improve the Enamel of Your Teeth

Is the enamel of your teeth starting to wear thin? This naturally happens as we age, but it can also happen when we are not taking very good care of our teeth.

If the enamel of your teeth is starting to wear thin, there are a few things that you can do. First, you should speak to your dentist, however. They can help you better than anyone else.

How Your Dentist Can Help with Your Enamel

Going to see your dentist can go a long way towards helping your enamel. They can give you a stronger toothpaste with extra fluoride and enamel boosting properties. Plus, they can also give you enamel boosting kits that you put into your mouth. They are liquids or gels that you put in your mouth to let your teeth soak up the benefits. It can help your teeth feel better, and stay stronger, in just a few short treatments.

Ways to Strengthen the Enamel You Still Have

Make sure to brush your teeth properly, but carefully. They need to get clean, but they need a gentle touch. Brushing too quickly or too roughly can literally wear the enamel right off of your teeth. Also, eat a really healthy diet. Your enamel will remain stronger if you fill your mouth with nutritious foods, as your teeth get bathed in the healthy vitamins and nutrients you consume that way.

Finally, make sure that you aren't doing anything damaging to your teeth. Grinding or clenching your teeth can wear down your enamel, leaving your teeth struggling to stay healthy.

If you aren't sure if you have enough enamel, contact our office. They can look at your teeth and give you an idea of how much enamel you have. If the enamel is damaged, they can also help you narrow down the cause so you can protect your teeth more.
