Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia NervosaEating disorders such as Bulimia Nervosa can lead to many other health problems, including maladies affecting oral health. Behaviors associated with eating disorders, such as binge eating or self-induced vomiting, can cause harmful changes in the mouth. The stomach acids released into the mouth through repeated episodes of vomiting can wear away tooth enamel, which might eventually lead to tooth decay and gingivitis.

It is also harmful to your oral health to brush your teeth right away. A natural rinsing solution is much more effective at cleaning your mouth. Try a mixture of baking soda and water.

Bulimia Nervosa can also cause braces and fillings to become loose or fit improperly.
