How to Strengthen Your Tooth Enamel

Tooth enamel enamel is the outer white layer of the crown. The enamel is made up of a highly mineralized substance that protects your teeth but is susceptible to degradation by bacterial acids if proper oral hygiene is not followed.

A weak or degrading tooth enamel can leave you prone to several dental issues, including teeth sensitivity, cavities, chipping, and a lot more. If your tooth shows early signs of tooth decay, there are some approaches you can take to stop and possibly reverse the teeth degradation process:

Change Your Eating and Hygiene Habits 

Enamel decay is most frequently the result of poor oral hygiene and diet. Restricting or minimizing sugary, starchy, and acidic foods from your diet and increasing the amount of nutrient-rich dark leafy vegetables and proteins will help slow tooth enamel decay. 

Use Fluoride Rich Toothpaste and Mouthwash

 Regularly using fluoride-rich toothpaste and mouthwash may help counteract tooth decay and aid in enamel remineralization. You can get it done professionally at the dental clinic to strengthen your teeth' enamel and stop it from progressing (provided it has not reached a critical point).

Practice Good Oral Hygiene 

When practicing good oral hygiene for your teeth and gums, it's essential to brush and floss your teeth twice daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush with fluoride-rich toothpaste. Visit your dentist regularly to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
