Dental erosion resulting from chewable vitamin C tablets

, : Dental erosion resulting from chewable vitamin C tablets. Journal of the American Dental Association 107(2): 253-256

A patient had severe dental erosion that was attributed primarily to the daily chewing of vitamin C tablets for three years. Tests were done to demonstrate the acidity of vitamin C tablets and the demineralization of enamel by a solution made with a tablet. The causes for dental erosion and the varying patterns of erosion are reviewed.
