Up to 82% of the adult population show signs of acid erosion. Frequent acid attacks by acidic drinks (e.g. orange juice, sports drinks) orlow saliva amount can contribute to permanent tooth enamel loss. Acid softens and demineralises enamel. Saliva neutralizes acid and provides a source of minerals to remineralisesoftened tooth enamel. Acid erosion can lead to exposed dentin causing tooth sensitivity with pain sensation to hot, cold, osmotic or tactile stimuli
