Nobody likes visiting the Oshawa dentist, but sometimes it is unavoidable. Dentists are great at repairing damage to your teeth as a result of physical harm or dietary degradation. However, there are ways you can actively prevent your diet from adversely affecting your teeth. Certain foods are much more dangerous for the sensitive materials in your teeth, like the enamel coating that is responsible for making teeth shiny and durable. Enamel is vital for the health of your teeth, and it doesn’t grow back once it has been eaten away from a tooth’s surface. Once it is gone, it is gone for good. You can help avoid the degradation of the enamel on your teeth by avoiding the foods that are known to eat away at the material.
