hay collins, effect on teeth of flouride (which is not an acid):- it reduces tooth decay. it enhances the degree and speed of remineralization and renders the remineralized enamel which is more resistent to subsequent attack . long term excess of flouride causes flourosis. lethal dose = 32- 64 mg F/kg body weight antidote is large volume of milk and refer to hospital for gastric levarage. other acids ... i dont know what acids come in the category OTHER acids ... but mainly acid produced on the tooth surface by the action of bacteria on food causes deminarization of teeth which results in high risk of tooth decay!
