Tupelo Dentist- Dr. John Kenney's "Your Dental Health"- Eating Disorders & Your Teeth
http://www.tupelosmiles.com/ http://tupelodentist.com It has been estimated that more than 10 million Americans currently are affected by serious eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia and binge eating. While anyone can suffer from an eating disorder, they are the most common in teens and young adult women. Eating disorders can rob the body of adequate minerals, vitamins, proteins, and other nutrients needed for good health. Eating disorders can also affect oral health. More and more dentists are becoming the first line of defense when it comes to spotting eating disorders in patients.
