Patients with eating disorders present a challenge for most dental professionals. If untreated, the disease is a life-threatening condition, and an early detection is in many ways important. A dental professional could be one of the first people to detect signs of the disease, it is therefore important to have knowledge about how to approach the problem and how to encourage patients to seek professional care. Regarding oral health, we have to consider that patients with eating disorders are at higher risk of developing dental erosion and caries. Prophylactic interventions are important, but sometimes a full-mouth rehabilitation is also necessary. As dental professionals, we can have a positive impact on the patient's quality of life, but to be able to do this, we need knowledge about their situation. The topic of this webinar is the detection and treatment of patients with eating disorders in the dental office.
