Tooth Wear

What causes it?

The common causes of tooth wear are:

  • Acids in the mouth
  • Wear from incorrect tooth brushing technique or a brush with firm bristles

The most common acid drinks that soften the tooth surface are:

  • Fresh fruit juices and smoothies
  • Fizzy drinks (diet and non-diet)
  • Wine/Prosecco
  • Beer/Cidre
  • Sports drinks

The following recommendations will help reduce tooth wear:


  • Clean gently with a soft toothbrush or ideally a powers oscillating tooth brush with a pressure indicator
  • Use a non-abrasive toothpaste – speak with your dental professional for further advice
  • Drink acidic beverages through a straw whenever possible
  • Use a fluoride mouthwash after acid food or drink whenever possible


  • Use a toothbrush with hard bristles
  • Scrub hard while brushing
  • Use an abrasive toothpaste e.g. smokers toothpaste
  • Brush your teeth immediately after acidic foods or drink

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • Having recently had serious tooth ache I managed to get booked into El Nashar, and I can honestly say from start to finish I was well looked after. I was seen by Victoria and Mary and they both made me feel calm and relaxed even though I was in tremendous pain. And a special thanks to Tiffany who helped me with booking more appointments and also gave me the relevant information I needed for my health insurance. All round fantastic service. What a team!!

  • I joined El Nashar at the beginning of this year, everyone I have come into contact with has been so friendly. I have been very impressed both with the staff and also the equipment in the surgery. To date, I have seen one of the hygienists Fran and my new dentist Veronica both have been excellent and very thorough. Special call out also to Vanessa on reception, today who was very helpful in rearranging some appointments.

  • After feeling let down by my NHS dentist my husband managed to get me an emergency appointment at El Nashar. I have been in absolute agony for a few weeks and feeling totally drained. From the minute I walked in I felt welcome, the reception team were lovely and very informative. I was seen by Jo and Mary and all I can say is I’ve never felt so relaxed at a dentist appointment. Jo went above and beyond to help me and the customer service all round was exceptional :)
