If enamel is compromised, you may experience tooth decay, infection or even loss of one or more teeth. In a relatively healthy person, plaque creates a layer of bacteria that adheres to the teeth. Sugar from foods and drinks combines with this bacteria to create erosive acids. However, there are several health conditions that can promote the buildup of acid or accelerate the process.


Diabetes sufferers run a greater risk of developing oral health problems such as tooth decay, infection and gum disease. This condition can result in a dry mouth, which is the perfect environment for an unbalanced pH level.

The pH level in your mouth dictates how much acid is able to attack enamel. The ideal is pH neutral that allows the teeth to resist the corrosive impact of acids.


Those who suffer from anemia will likely notice the gums becoming paler over time. This is due to an insufficient number of red blood cells. Teeth need a healthy dose of nutrients, which includes iron. There is an increased likelihood that you will suffer from advanced tooth decay due to anemia.

There are supplements available to combat the effects of anemia. Your doctor can provide a diagnosis and recommend the right treatment path, depending on your individual needs.

Eating Disorders

It is estimated that 9% of Americans suffer from an eating disorder. Conditions such as anorexia and bulimia can have a serious impact on overall health. Teeth suffer due to a lack of nutrients, leading to decay and potential tooth loss. If an eating disorder involves vomiting, the excess acid can also wear down enamel.


GERD is a gastroenterological condition that results in acid reflux. As stomach fluids are often forced up through the esophagus, the pH level in the mouth increases. Sufferers of this condition may experience advanced tooth decay and premature loss of teeth.

If you are concerned that a health condition is having a secondary impact on oral health, call Oral Dental Implant Studio today. We can replace compromised teeth so that you can maintain that perfect smile in California.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
