Bulimia, Anorexia Nervosa and Your Teeth – Brampton Dentists

Bulimia, Anorexia Nervosa, Your Teeth, Brampton Dentist, Brampton Dental Office, Dentistry,  Top Dentists in Brampton Ontario,

Both anorexia and bulimia are serious eating disorders. They occur when men or women have an extreme fear of becoming overweight. This can lead not only to excessive dieting, but sometimes, death.

Both conditions have implications for your teeth because your body is not getting the minerals, vitamins, proteins and other nutrients that are needed to maintain good oral health and good overall health.

In addition, a person who is bulimic may binge eat and then vomit. When this occurs the acids that break down your food eat away at the tooth enamel and may wreak havoc on your mouth. Translucent and worn teeth, bad breath or a swollen mouth, throat and glands may result. The Ontario Dental Association.

WHY SHOULD I VISIT A DENTIST? – DENTISTRY IN BRAMPTON

Brampton Dentist, Dentists in Brampton, Kids Dental Brampton, Dental Info, Dental Check Ups and Cleaning, Tooth Facts,

Regular check-ups are important for cleaning, the detection of cavities and periodontal examination. Plaque and tartar can build up in areas that are not easily reached through home maintenance. These can be removed during a dental cleaning to prevent cavities and gum disease.

While, for some patients, semi-annual visits are sufficient for cleaning and detection of cavities, patients’ needs do vary and patients should discuss the frequency of visits with their dentist. 

Patients should also contact their dentist immediately, if their gums bleed, teeth become hypersensitive to temperature or pressure, or in the event of tooth pain or abscess.

For more information contact one of our dental professionals 905-458-6620.

RISKS OF ORAL PIERCINGS

Melissa SAYS!
Piercing In Tongue, Oral Piercing, Dentist Brampton, Brampton Dental Office, Brampton Dentist, Tongue Piercing Facts,

Risks associated with oral piercing:

  • Chipped Teeth
  • Cracked teeth that can not be fixed and need to be extracted
  • Drooling
  • Bad breath
  • Altered speech ie. lisping
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of taste
  • Infection or the tissue around the piercing
  • Swallowing or chocking of all or parts of the piercing

    ODHA Dental Hygiene Facts:

    Ludwig’s angina is a life-threatening acute bacterial infection of the floor of the mouth caused when bacteria enter the bloodstream through the open wound (piercing site). This is a serious condition as the swelling from inflammation can block the air passage and prevent saliva from being swallowed.

    Body piercers are not members of the medical profession: They do not review health history, prescribe antibiotics or provide post-op care.

    Contaminated piercing equipment can lead to other infections such as blood borne hepatitis (B, C, D and G) as well as HIV and AIDS.
