Eating disorders can also affect your teeth! We can fix them!

Eating disorders can also affect your teeth! We can fix them!

More than 10 million people in America are affected by eating disorders, such as anorexia, bulimia and obesity. And surely you’re wondering how can eating disorders affect the health of my teeth? While there are many factors provoking these conditions, we must all be aware of how they can affect our body and our teeth.

Each of these diseases affects your body and oral health differently:

Anorexia: This disease can weaken teeth and bones, even causes xerostomia and osteoporosis. It also causes tooth decay due to dehydration.

Bulimia: When you induce binges and then purges, you can hurt your teeth due to the acids that come from the stomach. This causes loss of pigmentation and resistance. Eventually all the teeth could be lost.

Obesity: This is characterized by weak control of hunger, it is a disorder mixed with anxiety and depression. You could have cavities if you do not clean your teeth properly. This is the least harmful disorder for the teeth, but that does not mean it is better, because overeating is dangerous to overall health.

Some bulimics use dentures and some anorexic patients may need them after losing their teeth. The best thing to do is have a balanced diet full of calcium, vitamins, minerals and proteins. We recommend you follow the instructions of doctors, psychologists and dentists.
