DOES MORNING SICKNESS IMPACT YOUR TEETH?
Yes, the acid from your stomach can really do a lot of damage. “Your teeth are prone to erosion due to the disturbed Ph level in your mouth once you have thrown up or have any kind of acid reflux,” explains Dr Fouché. “Once you have thrown up, dissolve a bit of baking soda in water and rinse your mouth and then wait for an hour before brushing your teeth.”
The reason for this is that (similar to when you have had a Coke or orange juice) your mouth is acidic after vomiting which makes the outside layer of your teeth brittle and momentarily also weaker. So, if you brush straight after, you could potentially scratch and damage your teeth.
