Dental Erosion and Fluoride
I want to thank all who wrote in re: I had a concern regarding oral hygiene with acid reflux. I inquired with my dentist about this and in addition to the oral hygiene we all do, i.e., brush, floss, listerine . . .it is imperative to use a fluoride rinse and during the day rinse out your mouth when you feel the acid is building or have a bad taste. the reason for all of this is that the acid can wear away the enamel and wear down your teeth. Now the fluoride you can buy OTC or probably some where you can find a formula to make your own. Before even consulting with my dentist, it made sense that the feeling the acid had on my gums and teeth that it wasn't doing anything good.
