Eating Disorders Are Damaging To Teeth

Eating disorders are thought to affect more than 1.6 million people in the UK. The disorders are most common in teenagers and young women and may lead to dental complications.

  • Failure to get the required nutrients such as iron and vitamin B will lead to canker sores and bad breath
