How Bulemia Damages Teeth
A prosthodontist recognizes the problem by identifying the eroded enamel on chewing surfaces of back teeth, and stripping of the enamel on the back of front teeth. The overall thickness of protective enamel is reduced, and edges of front teeth begin to wear and chip.
Fortunately, these teeth can be restored, even when the damage is severe, and the patient returned to healthy function, and an attractive smile. The advanced training that prosthodontists have gives them the best perspective on the appropriate treatment options to treat those with this condition.
