Millions of individuals suffer from acid reflux disease. This condition causes stomach acids to reach up into the esophagus and even the mouth — which can irreparably damage your teeth and cause complications.

Still, the good news is that lifestyle changes can have a profound impact upon the overall outcome. What steps can you take?

  • Try to modify your diet to include fewer acidic foods.
  • Keep an eye out for the early signals of enamel erosion, like sensitivity.
  • Speak with your dentist to obtain additional professional advice.

“If you know you struggle with acid reflux, visiting your doctor for treatment is important.”
