Eating Disorders

  • Teens with eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia are at high risk for tooth decay. Binging and vomiting cause a double wash of sugars and acids over the teeth; violent vomiting can even result in chipped teeth.
  • Your dentist can treat your teeth, but if you have — or think you have — an eating disorder, talk to your physician.
