If I have acid erosion on my front teeth. Will the acid erosion continue to get worse if I am wearing a upper soft biteguard? I am a bad mouth breather.

If I have acid erosion on my front teeth. Will the acid erosion continue to get worse if I am wearing a upper soft biteguard? I am a bad mouth breather.

Not much: Your bite guard will protect your teeth from the wear caused by grinding. It will not protect your teeth from the acids in your diet, such as soda ( even diet sodas are acidic) or from bulimia or from gerd.
