Tips: Brushing and flossing properly after meals is a good regimen. Speak to your PCP or GI Specialist about any acid reflux issues. Discuss proper oral hygiene techniques with your own dentist who can personally examine you and monitor your dental health.

PreventionPrevention: See your dentist regularly for tooth enamel evaluation. Avoid foods and beverages: chocolate, spicy/greasy foods, tomato-based foods, alcohol, and coffee. Avoid eating several hours before bedtime, or lying down two to three hours after eating.
