Re: Tooth decay
Nov 21, 2005
Hey...IM glad I found this post. Im going to school for dental hygiene and just finished writting a paper on eating disorders with its relation to perio problems. bulimia is worse when it comes to your teeth because when you purge your food back up stomach acid comes up with it. the acid is extremely strong and is meant to stay in your stomach and break down food particles, so when it comes up it hits the back of your teeth.
If your not getting help for your eating disorder the best thing to do to save your teeth is to gargle with plain water, and drink it for about 10 minutes afterwords, do not brush first! the brushing will just rub the acid around in your mouth!
I hope this helps a little bit?
