Photo of bulimia teeth damage

We found a web page that has some excellent before-and-after photos of a bulimia case. Here is one of the photos.

bulimia damage to teeth

You can see the rest of them at www.chaldentistry.com/bulimia-and-teeth.html.

The typical pattern we see is illustrated in this photo: complete loss of enamel on the insides of the upper front teeth. You’ll also notice missing enamel on the upper bicuspids. Also, from the front, if you go to the site and see those photos, the incisal edges become more thin translucent and they begin to chip away.

The page emphasizes how treating teeth damage from bulimia needs to be done with great sensitivity to the emotional needs of the patient. Dr. McKay has recognized expertise in this, and has patients fly in from other parts of the country to repair damage from eating disorders.
