Balancing Acidic Foods to Avoid Acid Erosion

Posted on 12/20/2016 by Fady Ebid

When you eat acidic foods, it erodes your teeth. If you properly care for your teeth, the erosion takes a long time.

However, if you forget to care for your teeth after a meal, it speeds up the process.

One thing that you can do to help keep the erosion from being as strong is to balance out what acidic foods you eat with foods that are not as strong. Consider these foods to pair together.

Acidic Foods You Are Likely Eating

Regular meals often consist of acids, even if we are not thinking about them. If you regularly eat tomato based meals, then you are eating a lot of acid that can harm your teeth. Other foods are acidic as well and can impact the pH balance of your mouth. Foods like coffee, pickles, and cranberries are culprits that many of us eat regularly. Citrus foods are also a big source of acid.

Counterbalance Foods to Restore the pH In Your Mouth

If you are eating those acidic foods, then you need foods to counterbalance the acids. Consider these foods to have along with the acidic ones.

•  Oatmeal and whole grains
•  Pastas (made from whole grains)
•  Lean meats and fish
•  Fruits like apples, melons, and bananas
•  Dairy foods like milk and cheese
•  Eggs and nuts
•  Vegetables like leafy greens

Balancing an acid out with a counterbalance allows you to keep your teeth healthier and keep the levels of acids lower in your mouth.

Contact our office about what your level of acid erosion is, and how you should keep it to a minimum. They can give you solid advice about how to properly care for your teeth and keep them healthy and strong for many years to come.
