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.

REASONS WHY YOU MAY NEED INVISALIGN OR BRACES

Brampton Dentists, Invisalign, Invisalign Price, Top Dentists in Brampton, Brampton Dental Offices,

Malocclusion or a bad bite is when your top and bottom teeth do not fit together properly when biting. A reason for this could be missing, crooked, crowded or protruding teeth. Thumb or finger sucking may also be a contributor. In some cases, malocclusion or a bad bite, makes it harder for an individual to chew certain foods and due to the position of the teeth, some teeth may wear down. It may also cause teeth and jaw pain and tension. Teeth that stick out, also known as buck teeth, are more susceptible to being chipped or broken. Teeth that are crowded and crooked are harder to clean, when brushing and flossing and may be more likely to get cavities and/or gum disease. The position of your teeth and jaw has a great effect on your bite, so the sooner it is fixed the healthier your body and smile will be.

Different types of orthodontic treatments are available for fixing malocclusion or a bad bite, from traditional braces to Invisalign. Be sure to visit our office to find out what treatment is best for you.
