Acid erosion is an emerging issue for 21st Century dentistry. This is the damage
caused by acids — often from food sources — softening the surface of the tooth's enamel, which is then more easily worn away.
As a leading oral care company committed to improving oral health
care and wellbeing, GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare is working with dental professionals to
make the public aware of the issue to ensure that steps are taken to identify
the signs and minimise the risk. Find out more >
