1. Acidic foods do very bad effect on your dental health. So eat less acidic foods and rinse your mouth after eating or drinking acidic foods/ beverages.

2. Don’t brush your teeth immediately after having sugary foods, acidic foods. Brush your teeth at least after an hour of having acidic and sugary foods.

3. Drink milk, water, sugarless tea and coffee instead of carbonated drinks.

4. Now I put very common but important point here. Always choose a soft brush and fluoride added toothpaste. Fluoride is very useful to increase your dental health and it can also reduce tooth sensitivity.

Saliva protects teeth with protective calcium and minerals. All the tips given by ethan are really good and related to acidic erosion. I would also like to add several measures for protecting acidic erosion.
1)Drinking more water naturally protects your teeth from acidic erosion.
2)Try consuming sugar free gums this will boost salivary flow and reduce acidic erosion.

I seem to have noticed that after eating a lot of fruit that I can feel the acid for many hours afterward, and that is after brushing a few times within that period. It seems to penetrate into the gum tissues. Sad

Yes Monul thats true..

Consumption of other drinks like coffee, tea, cola, red wine, etc. can also crack the Enamel because of the presence of acid in it. And as the enamel of the tooth gets damaged or cracked tooth erosion happens.

So prevent drinking excessive drinks like tea, coffee, red wine, etc. to prevent tooth erosion.
