DENTAL ADVICE FOR PATIENTS WITH EATING DISORDERS
Do not brush teeth immediately after vomiting, especially with harsh toothpastes as this causes more damage and accelerates the m erosion of the surface of enamel
Chewing sugar free chewing gum after meals can help to stimulate saliva production and reverse the effects of a dry mouth.
Many studies support the hypothesis that the consumption of cheese or milk reduces the effects of acid on enamel.
Meticulous home care, thorough brushing, flossing, and possible at-home fluoride treatments are necessary.
Temporary appliance such as mouth guards may be recommended to prevent additional wear.
Refer to physician.
