Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could help me with something. I have been sick so the past 2 months(actually getting sick) and I was wondering what kind of effect this would have on my teeth? I have had braces for a year now and they should be coming off soon, I don't want to waste money getting my teeth straight if they are going to get ruined anyway with me getting sick and all. Does anyone know anything about this, I would appricate a reply. Thanks Smile

If you are intentionally making yourself throw up alot...Yes it will ruin your teeth! The stomach acid that comes up along w/vomit ruins your teeth causing cavities and such.

Hey
I think that you should be more worried about yourself, then your teeth. Ofcourse your teeth are being ruined if your are making yourself vomit, because the acids are eating away at not only your teeth, but your stomach and your esophogas, and your reflux. I don't think you really understand what you are doing to yourself, and I suggest that you get yourself some help.
