Dental Treatment for Bulimia + ED (Eating Disorders)

Teeth and oral tissue affected by Bulimia Nervosa and other eating disorders can cause serious dental and oral health issues.  Millions of men and women are suffering from eating disorders.  Most of the damage to their teeth and oral tissue in bulimic patients occur during purging episodes.

In people with Bulimia, enamel is commonly worn down due to acid erosion (mainly on the inside of the upper front teeth and tops of posterior teeth).  Sensitivity to hot and cold increase and teeth start to thin out, change color and chip which effects the smile.  Patients also experience gum pain, dry mouth, a decrease in their saliva, problems swallowing and bad breath.

Dr. Toubia has extensive experience in helping bulimic patients with their dental bite and esthetic needs.  In a friendly and non-threatening environment, he approaches the patient in a very trusting manner.  He listens attentively and empathetically.  His main goal is improving the patient’s overall health and self-esteem.

For patients with esthetic issues, Dr. Toubia cannot over emphasize enough the power of a beautiful, healthy smile in boosting their positive self-image and self-esteem.  A smile-make over can be a life changing improvement.  He is very experienced in cosmetic dentistry and he has excellent lab technicians.  Together they create magnificent and natural looking smiles.

For patients with bite problems, he has developed a very conservative minimally invasive full mouth reconstruction techniques, CETMR and CEER which replace lost enamel on teeth and improve the bite and esthetics at the same time.

For patients with less severe damage to their teeth he has dental treatments , (biotmemetic dentistry, ECRC: Esthetic Conservative Root Coverage, minimally invasive dentistry) to restore the teeth in a very conservative manner requiring no tooth preparation and no anesthetic.  In all cases, he customizes his treatment plan to the needs, wants and desires of the patient, restoring their teeth, smile and bite.  To insure and improve the patient’s total health, Dr. Toubia has created caring programs that stress maintenance, education and proper referral to other professionals if needed.  These professionals in related fields play an integral role in helping the patient and hopefully cure their malady.   If patients already have their own professional Dr. Toubia fully communicate and cooperate with them.  Team work is crucial in achieving healing.

Home care kits are highly recommended. For follow up routine professional cleanings, prevention and maintenance of restorations are imperative.

Please call and make an appointment for a consult with Dr. Toubia so he can help you.
