People with eating disorders can suffer from oral health problems as well. This is because many of the behaviors associated with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa—such as binge eating, self-induced vomiting, and use of diuretics or laxatives—cause changes in the mouth. 

For example, repeated episodes of vomiting, which is common in people with bulimia, release harmful stomach acids that pass through the mouth and can erode tooth enamel, causing cavities, discoloration and tooth loss.  Other problems, such as poorly fitting fillings and braces, are another byproduct of such eating disorders.

Brushing after episodic vomiting is actually more harmful than one would think. The best practice is to rinse thoroughly with a neutral solution such as baking soda and water.

Accidents Will Happen

Unfortunately accidents do happen, and when they involve your teeth you want to go somewhere where the dentists have experience in these matters. At University Dental we have not only been taking care of our current patients in these times, but for the past 25 years we have been the practice that treats Oakland University Athletic department needs. When there is a sports related injury at OU we are the office that gets the call to provide the emergency services. This has given us the opportunity to provide for and gain experience in these complicated cases.
