How Eating Disorders like Bulimia or Anorexia can Harm your Teeth!

eating disorder pasadena

Eating disorders, such as bulimia or anorexia, can seriously damage the condition of your teeth because of the effects they produce in your organism. Recurrent self-induced vomiting after eating high amounts of food characterizes the bulimia disorder.

This continuous vomiting causes gastric acids and other substances to travel to the mouth resulting in:

  • Tooth enamel erosion
  • Cavities
  • Teeth discoloration
  • Tooth loss
  • Tooth decay

What other consequences can eating disorders have on my oral health?

It is important to realize that anorexia or semi-starvation deprives the body of the many nutrients it needs. It could end up causing bone diseases like osteoporosis which in turn, weakens the jaw bones that support your teeth. This condition leads to tooth loss which is fatal for a person’s oral health and smile appearance. Additionally, malnutrition affects the entire immune system, which makes a person more vulnerable to develop other dental disorders such as, tooth decay and gum disease.

If this is your case, our Pasadena dentist at CyberDent has the solution for your dental problems. This is how we can help:

  • Start with a total hygiene care
  • Attend regular professional dental cleanings with our Pasadena dentist
  • Fluoride treatments are recommended to prevent further erosion, decrease dentin sensitivity, neutralize acids and protect and mineralize the tooth surfaces
  • Frequent dental visits to monitor the condition of the mouth
  • And last but not least commit yourself to a professional treatment and begin a healthy lifestyle

Our Pasadena dentist will help you repair any dental damage with a complete dental plan according to your needs and budget. Most importantly, someone suffering from these eating disorders needs to get psychological help to overcome them and lead a healthy life.

Schedule your appointment with our Pasadena dentist as soon as possible to discuss your oral health and the treatments available to you!
