Foods That Fight Acid Wear

Counter Salad Dressing with Crunch

With its vinegar component, salad dressing is an acid attack waiting to happen. Add high-fibre vegetables or unsweetened cacao nibs to your salad. These crunchy foods will help promote saliva production and protect your tooth enamel.

 

Glass of acidic orange juice and a bowl of yogurt.

Drink Juice with Yogurt

Fruit juice contains the flavour but lacks the fiber of whole fruit. So what you’re left with is a lot of condensed acid and sugar, which promotes enamel wear. Mix your fruit juice with plain yogurt and make a smoothie to neutralize the acidity.

 

Two glasses of red wine paired with three stacks of cheese

Pair Wine with Cheese

Red and white wines are highly acidic, so pair your wine with cheese to counteract the oncoming acid attack. The calcium in cheese limits the increase in acidity and promotes remineralization of tooth enamel.

 

Colorful donuts with three  glasses of milk

Eat Dessert with a Glass of Milk

Sugary sweets and desserts are primary culprits when it comes to enamel wear. Counteract the acid attack caused by sweets with milk. The calcium in milk can limit the increase in acidity and promote the remineralization of tooth enamel.

 

Two glasses of acidic pop beside sugar free gum

Drink Soft Drinks with Sugar-Free Gum

Soft drinks (including diet drinks) are basically acid baths for your teeth. To protect your tooth enamel against wear, follow up your soft drink with sugar-free (xylitol-sweetened) gum. This stimulates saliva production, which helps remineralize tooth enamel.
