Sorry for the delay in responding, my original replies did not go through. I did not include that information in my presentation. I am not aware of any studies in that area.
Thank you for the feedback!
I appreciate your comments and they will be passed on the those who make the decisions!
I guess it has a lot common with eating disorder, esp. bulimia.
I wonder if you can tell me if in the U.S. dentist recommend rinsing with sodium bicarbonate only after vomiting or also patients who their teeth whitened or eat o lot of acid food on daily basis.
Do you diagnose orthorexy or ortorectic anorexia nervosa?
Thanking in advance, I am,
Best regards from Poland,

Sodium bicarbonate can be used to neutralize the effects of acidity in the mouth after vomiting and I suppose it can't hurt to use if someone has a diet very high in acidity. As far as using it for whitening teeth, there are much better agents on the market for this purpose.
If I feel someone is suffering from anorexia nervosa, I will refer to my medical colleagues for a work-up and subsequent treatment.
Sorry for the delay in answering your question, as I recently found out my initial responses did not go through.Thank you.
