Acid Reflux and Enamel Loss

Acid Reflux and Enamel Loss

Triple Bristle customer Christian G. asked: 

Is there any way to help prevent enamel loss? I was recently told I have enamel loss on the back of my two front teeth so I would like to prevent further issues. Is it possible to brush too hard with the triple brush?

Enamel loss, especially on the back of your front teeth, may be the result of acid reflux or eating a very acidic diet.

You see…

Acid reflux occurs when the sphincter muscle at the lower end of your esophagus relaxes at the wrong time, allowing stomach acid to travel back up into your esophagus. 

This can cause heartburn, belching, nausea, and a variety of other embarrassing symptoms. 

Don’t worry, though, many people experience acid reflux. 

A visit to your gastroenterologist can determine whether you have acid reflux.

It’s important to note, in our clinical study, there were zero reports of damaged enamel or gums, and since we use soft bristles on our brush heads, it’s very unlikely your loss of enamel is caused by our 3-sided electric toothbrush

Something else I would do…is avoid using abrasive toothpastes. 

Many whitening toothpastes are very abrasive.

Instead, I’d consider using an MI paste or Biomin toothpaste. Both use remineralizing agents to help restore lost tooth structure and help regrow enamel. 

The key here is to first figure out the reason for the enamel loss so you can change your routine for long-term success.
