Can Tooth Enamel Become Damaged?

At Parkside Dental Care, we want the best for our patients’ oral health. We want our patients to have the knowledge about their dental health to know when something doesn’t feel right in the mouth. One common issue many of our patients experience is with their tooth enamel. Enamel is the outer covering that surrounds your teeth. Tooth enamel is actually the strongest substance in your body, but it is not indestructible, especially if you are not taking care of it properly.
