Moderate to High Risk

Based on your answers you could be at risk from acid wear. The frequent consumption of acidic food and drinks weakens enamel making it easier to wear away. Today's the day to act. Protect your enamel from everyday acids because once enamel's gone, it's gone for good.

There are some very simple steps you can take, starting today:

  • Make an appointment to see your dentist if you haven't been in the past 6 months.
  • Don't give up the healthy food in your diet, particularly fruit, but take a fresh look at how you eat it.
  • Don't swish, swirl or hold acidic drinks in your mouth for too long.
  • Many drinks, especially fizzy ones, can contribute to acid wear. Try drinking through a straw or substituting the soft drink for water or milk.
  • Wait 30 minutes to brush your teeth after eating or drinking and make sure you're using a soft-bristled brush.
