TREATING A PATIENT WITH BULIMIA by Dr. John Kanca III, DMD
I wanted to share a case with you that is outside of the norm but stresses a number of themes I believe are critical to providing treatment. Recently I was treating a difficult case of a long time patient who struggles with bulimia. Ideally the first course of action is to get the underlying condition under control. When that isn't possible some level of treatment can become necessary to protect the patient from themselves. Unfortunately that was the situation in the case I'm about to share with you. It is challenging cases like this that make your choice of materials and treatment protocols critical. If you aren't completely confident in your materials, work like this becomes even more challenging.
