Oral rehabilitation of a bulimic patient: A case report

Esteban D. Bonilla, DDS/Oscar Luna, DDS

Pages: 469-475
PMID: 11491627

Bulimia nervosa is among the most common health problems in contemporary society. It is a self-induced weight loss syndrome associated with distinct dental manifestations involving physical and psychologic symptoms. It is characterized by recurrent binge-purge episodes that occur at least once a day. This article describes the complete-mouth rehabilitation of a bulimic patient with a generalized enamel erosion of her dentition and a poor esthetic appearance. Porcelain-fused-to-metal restorations were used as the definitive treatment. Good esthetics and high self-esteem were the final results. Comprehensive restorative therapy was applied in this clinical case report to achieve both function and esthetics in a demanding situation.
