Acid Reflux Ruins Your Teeth

If you’ve been diagnosed with acid reflux or GERD, follow your doctor’s instructions on controlling the reflux — as the acid can get into your mouth and damage your teeth. Your doctor/ dentist will suggest treatment strategies that will protect your dental health.

Key takeaways:

  • Consult your doctor for treatment. Your dentist will perform an exam and put you on a treatment plan
  • A diet change may be necessary. Avoiding foods such as raw onions, lemons, tomatoes, and spicy foods plus acidic drinks will also be helpful
  • Visit your dentist regularly for assessment.

Rinse your teeth with water after eating acidic foods, drinking alcohol or smoking.
