Abstract

The habitual and abusive use of fruits and foods containing citric acid can cause serious dissolution effects on human tooth enamel. Because these effects can occur so easily, this paper suggests that foods and fruits containing citric acid, as well as other acids, could be definite contributors to the many other forms of idiopathic erosion so often observed by the dentist. There is a need for continued research and study in this area.
