The Fallacy that Brushing Alone will Prevent Dental Erosion

A traditional dentist would sometimes claim that brushing alone would help to prevent the erosion of enamel on the surfaces of teeth. Conversely, a recent project concluded that this is not the case. Some of the most important results included:

– Out of nine different toothpastes, each one eroded human teeth to a point.

– Larger abrasive particles can cause more damage.

– Preventing tooth decay involves other actions such as dietary modifications and regular dental appointments.

“The researchers plan to begin a more specific in-vivo study that will also include pain evaluations.”
