MESKO, M. E.; SKUPIEN, J. A. & PEREIRA-CENCI, T. Acid foods and soft drinks dental erosive potential: Warning messages or not? Int. J. Odontostomat., 8(1):59-62, 2014.

ABSTRACT: This Communication aims to present the issue of dental erosion in another point of view. Considering the increasing rate of incidence of this dental injury among children and adults, the narrative raises the question about the danger of indiscriminate intake of certain acidic foods and beverages which are scientifically proven as one of the causes of dental erosion, as well as the complete neglect of information by the food industry about these products. The authors present some points that still remain in doubt in this topic and some approaches, which should be taken to alert the population about the relation between acidity of food and dental erosion.

KEY WORDS: tooth erosion, acidity, food Industry, eating.
