How to Control the Acidic Levels in Foods and Beverages From Hurting Your Teeth?

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Singing River Dentistry Midtown
How to Control the Acidic Levels in Foods and Beverages From Hurting Your Teeth?Numerous habits can damage your teeth. Martial arts and engaging in physically demanding sports are a couple of them. Because of this, a lot of athletes carry mouthguards in case they might get hurt or get in danger while playing. As a result, their teeth are kept in place and their risk of injury is reduced. However, people occasionally experience tooth pain as a result of their diet.

What Types of Food Hurt Your Teeth?

When you bite on something complex, like a bone, you definitely wind up hurting your teeth for a while. The complicated discomfort is caused by chemical reactions in the mouth. When one consumes a lot of carbohydrates, bacteria in the mouth break them down and produce lactic acid. Your tooth enamel is eroded by this acid, which may result in a cavity that causes toothaches and extreme sensitivity. Sugary drinks also cause your teeth's acid levels to rise, which damages and hurts your teeth.

How Do I Minimize the Effect of Pain On My Teeth?

Some people completely cut off sugar and carbohydrates from their diets. If this is challenging for you, try to balance the alkaline and acidic content of everything on your plate. Drinking a lot of water for 30 minutes before and after meals is another option. This improves the pH in your mouth and lessens the damage that highly acidic foods can do to your teeth. In addition, it is advised that you visit a dentist to have the nature of your tooth or gum discomfort evaluated.
