­­How Eating Disorders Can Affect Your Mouth

The way you eat food has a huge impact on your oral health. Experts say the first effects of an eating disorder are felt in the mouth. Nutritional deficiencies and bad habits caused by fast eating are the biggest impacts on dental health. If someone has an eating disorder, it can affect oral health in the long term and cause permanent damage. It's important to make sure you are prepared to treat the problem:

How eating disorder affects dental health:

Deteriorating gums:

When you have an eating disorder, your body feeds your gum tissue. Not getting enough nutrients to give Malnutrition causes gums to bleed and begin to loosen, leading to tooth decay and tooth loss. Nutrients such as calcium, iron, and B vitamins, which are also important for dental health, are depleted from the body, and deficiency leads to periodontal disease and tooth decay. A lack of calcium causes tooth decay, a lack of iron causes mouth ulcers, and a lack of vitamin D causes bad breath.

Decay due to acid:

Eating disorders are often accompanied by vomiting, releasing acid produced in the stomach. If you vomit frequently, this acid attacks the outer layer of your teeth, the enamel. Tooth discoloration, bad breath, sensitive teeth, and tooth decay are common signs of acid damage

Damage to the salivary glands:

Every year several cases are reported at Cosmodent India,  where people suffer from salivary gland complications. When people are habitual to binge eating and purging cycle, the salivary gland becomes enlarged which is painful as well as aesthetically displeasing.


 People who suffer from anorexia or bulimia can experience a variety of adverse effects, from tooth sensitivity to tooth decay. They need immediate medical attention to ensure their teeth are protected from serious damage.

If you suffer from an eating disorder of any kind, it is recommended that you see your New Britain dentist as soon as possible to ensure timely tooth protection and restorative treatment of already damaged teeth. It is recommended. Also, don't forget to consult an eating disorder specialist to treat the root cause of the problem.
