One of the most important things you can do for your dental health is protect tooth enamel. Your enamel is the hardest substance in your body—it has to be, to withstand up to 200 pounds of bite pressure—but it is also vulnerable to damage if it doesn’t receive the minerals it needs. When your tooth enamel becomes weak, bacteria can attack your teeth and lead to cavities, tooth infection, and even tooth loss. With the help of your dentist, good oral hygiene habits, and smart dietary choices, you can keep your enamel strong for life.
