For Healthy Tooth Enamel, Avoid The Following

Chewing On Hard Foods
For example, Beef jerky and pitted fruits.
If you grind your teeth, discuss it with your dentist. It can cause headaches, tooth damage, and gum recession. An appliance can protect your enamel.
Drinking Anything Besides Water Frequently
If your teeth are awash in carbonated beverages (sugared or diet), juice, coffee, or sports drinks consistently, your enamel will suffer from the acids and sugar.
