Re: Bulimia and Cavities

Hello Hannah and welcome.

It's not the purging itself,that causes erosion of the enamel but rather the corrosive acid juices which are released from the digestive system.

Yes.
The point of filling cavities is so no no further damage can possibly reach the root(hence the procedure root canal) or result in early tooth extraction.

Respectfully
Phoenix
