How To Protect Teeth From Acid Reflux


Hello, Dr. Grey Kantor here with Kantor Dental Group in San
Rafael, California. Today I want to talk about acid reflux and how to deal with that with your teeth… your teeth. Say you get something like a sour burp or perhaps you have E.D. or maybe you just notice the sour taste in your
mouth quite often. What this is likely to do to is acid reflux or regurgitation. Any acid attack on your teeth of that magnitude, and that is an extreme acid attack on your teeth, you do not want to rush right away. You’re an enamal has softened. Putting an abrasive toothpaste on your teeth at that time, when you have soft enamel, can be very damaging to your teeth. Especially you’re doing it multiple
times as in someone with acid reflux. You have the acid on your teeth, softening the enamal, the abrasive toothpaste that is abrasive – that is normally
not going to damage your teeth. But with soft enamel you create this wear pattern which will slowly wear away your teeth. Wear away the enamel on your teeth
over time causing possible need for a lot restorations. So, the safe thing to do. If you have an acid attack on your
teeth, an extreme one, such as such as even oranges, but especially any sort of stomach acid. The safe thing to do is to rinse out with water afterwards. Wait 15 minutes. And that’s going to allow the pH in
your mouth to balance and allow the enamel to harden. And then brush your teeth. Don’t do it right away because
that’s again very damaging to your teeth. This is included with oranges, because oranges are pretty extreme acid. Again, wait 15, rinse out with water, wait 15 minutes, then brush. Hopefully this helps anybody who has
acid attacks on their teeth with acid reflux. I know that’s a difficult disease. If you have any questions about this or would like to know more about

  2. My adult front teeth is about to fall out because I ended up wiggling it. I don't have a dentist appointment scheduled soon and my front tooth is 100% a permanent tooth. What should I do? I'm really scared to lose my permanent tooth and don't want to spend tons of money to fix it.
