Abstract

Eating disorders are an increasing problem for society and the medical professions. The dental practitioner has an important role both in identifying the illnesses and in minimising its affects on the dentition. This paper highlights the features of the most common eating disorders and discusses the possible role of the dental profession in the long-term care of patients suffering from the problem.
