Here’s a 2 minutes and 52 seconds Eating Disorders And Dental Health Problems video.
Eating disorders, namely bulimia and anorexia nervosa, also bring huge implications on dental health and oral wellness. A person suffering from bulimia usually vomits after having a meal in order to avoid gaining weight. This puts teeth at risk because when vomiting, teeth get exposed to acids from the stomach. As a result, the teeth’s enamel gets eroded and teeth become more vulnerable to damage and decay.
In the case of anorexia nervosa, an individual strictly limits food intake. Again, this is due to the fear and anxiety of gaining weight. Because of this severely limited diet, the person misses out on the essential nutrients that promote the well-being of teeth and gums such as calcium, iron, vitamin D, B vitamins, and many others. Without these nutrients, dental and oral health problems are more likely to arise.
In preserving your natural teeth and your beautiful smile, it is important to keep your eating habits in check. Eat on time and maintain a balanced diet.
