Recent studies have shown that enamel strength is an inherited trait and women have stronger enamel than men. But how does environment – dietary habits – affect men’s and women’s enamel?

Key takeaways:

– Men’s enamel is more susceptible to dental erosion than women’s enamel.

– This means men’s teeth will be more at risk from erosion by acidic foods and drinks.

– Women must also watch out for enamel erosion, as dietary habits, eating disorders, and bad oral hygiene will have an effect on them as well.
