Eating Disorder Treatment
Few dentists talk about eating disorders, and even fewer treat them. But for Dr. Bjorklund, looking away is not an option. Known as a highly-skilled smile designer, Dr. Bjorklund realizes that Wayzata eating disorder treatment near Minneapolis is very important, and can truly change the lives of these patients in need.
The enamel, which is the protective coating on your teeth, wears thin after being bombarded by stomach acid. This acid comes into contact with your teeth when purging takes place, a defining characteristic of the eating disorder called bulimia. If continued, over time this will destroy your enamel, increasing sensitivity, and subsequent spacing will cause discomfort, pain and a degraded smile.
A compassionate, confidential approach and the means to effectively treat the teeth are why many people who need Wayzata eating disorder treatment around Minneapolis turn to Dr. Bjorklund.

To remedy the aggravating temperature sensitivity related to the loss of tooth enamel from bulimia, Dr. Bjorklund simply bonds a cosmetic dental plastic or porcelain over the teeth, insulating and protecting your teeth to decrease the sensitivity that may have made it impossible to enjoy hot or cold foods.
Once the eating disorder is treated through proper medical care, which must be obtained outside of Dr. Bjorklund’s dental office, a more permanent cosmetic dental procedure can be used, one that will protect and maintain your beautiful smile for 15 to 20 years, or even more.
