ED and dental problems

Hi. I had issues with disordered eating and eating disorders for many years. While it is better than it once was, it has left me with a whole lot of dental problems. Most of my teeth have had root canals, and many have crowns or should have crowns. I think realistically, a couple might have to be extracted. I feel like somewhere down the road I will loose my teeth and it is giving me major anxiety. Has anyone had such experiences with irreversible teeth problems caused by ED?

I was diagnosed with bulimia nervosa and have had to have teeth removed due to damage done by the eating disorder

I assume it's Bulimia @Silverlings81 and so my question would be: do you brush or rinse after each purge?

Mm I have had periods of bulimia (not currently), it could have been binge eating as for me too. My dentist definitely warned me about hard foods. @sadgirl, what did you do after removal of teeth, did you get implants, bridges, or something of the sort?
