Bulimia Nervosa

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of binge eating followed by purging behaviors, such as self-induced vomiting or excessive exercise. The frequent exposure of teeth to stomach acid can lead to enamel erosion, tooth sensitivity, cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. Individuals with bulimia nervosa should seek professional help for both the eating disorder and the associated oral health concerns. Dentists can provide treatment options to restore damaged teeth and offer guidance on maintaining oral health during recovery.
