Re: Teeth Problems Caused By ED? - October 16th 2014, 08:52 PM

Don't have an diagnosed ED, but when I purge (this really nothing to do with my teeth) but I get a super sore throat. When I finish purging also my teeth do feel a little achy if that makes any sense. I also have braces so I get worried about ruining them with my stomach acid (SORRY- TMI) and my orthodontist finding out that I purge. I do know that a lot of dentist look for ED'S when you have enamel erosion (the irreversible loss of tooth structure) on your teeth. Sorry if I couldn't help you, I am just telling you what has happened to me.

Hey there,

I purge and the last time I went to the dentist I had three cavities which was concerning because two months or so prior to that my teeth were perfectly healthy. So, I would say that my purging caused the cavities. There are a number of negative effects that purging can have on your teeth such as causing some people to lose their teeth and having to get dentures. The stomach acid does a lot of damage to the enamel of the tooth which isn't good at all.

I don't know if this was any help but maybe if you supplied us with more information we would be able to give you a bit more of a detailed response. But, if not, I hope that this helped in some way.

I purge but I have no teeth problems what so ever. I just went to the dentist and I had no cavities or anything. But I know what can happen to my teeth because of purging.

Just be true to who you are

Hi,
Yea purging causes cavities, causes the acid to wear away at your teeth enamel, teeth sensivity, brittle teeth, discolored teeth, tooth lost, teeth to chip

http://www.healthline.com/health-sli...ulimia-teeth#1


I have made friends with 5 different girls who have all said that they had to get
dentures at the age of 26 because of purging.

I have had a lot of cavities, chipping of teeth because of it.

Thanks, I am trying to stop but it's hard. I haven't purged for like 1 month, which is good I think.

EVERYONE: remember that purging not only takes the food out of your body, but also the very essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs to survive. You are not getting any calcium or protein or vitamin C. This will lower your immune system, weaken your bones, and eat at your muscles. I know it's hard, but continuing to do this could permanently damage your body.

I don't really have any problems with my teeth, but sometimes I do notice that whenever I go through periods of restricting/starving myself, my teeth do become a little sensitive after a while. But then I start the bingeing cycle and my teeth go back to normal.

I don't purge, so my teeth don't have any damage from that. I do have cavities, but those are just from poor dental hygiene, even though I am working on getting better dental hygiene.

My teeth are a wreck. I've had over ten cavities in the last seven or eight years since my behaviors begun, and I take better care of my teeth than my sister, who has had maybe 1.

Purging doesn't actually get rid of all the food. Something like less than 50% of the calories, or so I was told. Don't quote me on that, but guys, it's really really not worth it <3

And yeah, I screwed up my teeth, but by binge eating sweets I think, I had near perfect teeth and then BOOM!

Good luck, guys. (: x

Your right x
Purging doesn't get rid of all the food because once you purge it's partially digested already I think anyway?

What work have you had to have on your teeth?
If you don't mind me asking x

Thanks for the good luck x

Fillings mainly, ouchy :P And yeah I think (bio class) that enzymes in your mouth start digesting food as soon as you put it in there, and enzymes in your stomach too start digesting really quickly. Uh, I think :P

And you're welcome, hope you guys are okay (:

Yeah, a ton of fillings, a few root canals. My teeth are also super sensitive now so I have to use Sensodyne.

And yeah, purging gets rid of less than half of calories consumed. I learned that in Abnormal Psych. It's not worth it at all, quit before it's a habit.

I didn't even make the link until now. Wow, I'm dumb. My teeth have been sensitive for a while and I never attributed it to that.

Hey there.

I purge and even though I am really careful with my teeth and having good dental hygiene, as well as taking measure to limit the side effects of purging....I have cavities and my teeth are sensitive, and a few are slightly chipped.

I never had a cavity or any teeth issues until I started purging.

There is acid in vomit, so those who purge (generally) have bad teeth, along with sore throats.

Whenever I purge (as result of upset stomach or deliberate, which is rare) my teeth feels all gross. I have to brush it when my stomach's settled.
