Repairing Tooth Damage Caused by Bulimia
Affecting approximately ten percent of the population, eating disorders are a serious medical concern that can cause devastating harm to one’s physical and psychological health. Bulimia, in particular, can be the cause of considerable dental damage that can have lasting effects even if the individual manages to overcome his or her condition. Fortunately, there are a number of highly effective treatments that can restore the teeth and oral structures and give patients with eating disorders a chance to smile confidently again.
Some of the most common problems associated with bulimia include:
- Enamel erosion
- Gum disease
- Dental decay and tooth loss
- Staining and discolouration
- Bite misalignment
- Tooth sensitivity
- Dry mouth
