Acid Wear Treatment

When we eat food, especially sugary types, the bacteria on our teeth digest the sugars and form acid as a by-product. This can begin to dissolve the tooth surface (enamel) causing cavities into the softer inner layer of the tooth (dentine). This is why it is so important to avoid eating sugary snacks in between meals; to allow the teeth time to rest after the acid attack from the meal.
