Here’s a 3 minutes and 1 second Eating Disorders Can Cause Dental Health Problems video. See full transcript below.

Eating disorders, such as bulimia and anorexia nervosa, affects body weight, nutrition, as well as dental health and oral wellness. People suffering from bulimia usually vomit after having a meal so that they will not gain any weight. Then again, this puts teeth in peril because when vomiting, acids from the stomach get in touch with the teeth. As a result, tooth enamel gets eroded and teeth become get damaged and decayed.

People with anorexia nervosa, on the other hand, have a severely limited food intake. Again, this is to prevent gaining weight. This results to malnutrition and people with this condition miss out on nutrients which are important to dental and oral health like calcium, iron, vitamin D, B vitamins, and many others.

When it comes taking good care of your teeth and gums, it is important to consider your eating habits. The way you eat does not only affect your figure but your smile as well.
