Dentists Could Diagnose Eating Disorders

Dentists can play an important role in spotting the early signs of eating disorders:

– Oral signs of eating disorders can be spotted by the dentist, such as erosion of the enamel inside the upper front teeth (facing the roof of the mouth).

– Eating disorders affect approximately 725000 people in the UK; earlier diagnoses would benefit patients by improving long-term health outcomes.

– Regular dentist appointments can also check that teeth are healthy and there are no signs of gum disease.

“Dentists can play a key role in the detection of health conditions including anorexia nervosa, bulimia and Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD).”
