Excuse my ignorance

What are peoples experiences of non-purging eating disorders in regards to their teeth? I am expecting that teeth would be affected by restriction in the same way that bones are affected due to calcium deficiency - and probably other things that I'm unaware of. I expect COE may cause teeth problems for other reasons but I'm specifically interested in restriction as this relates to my situation. I've heard people on my friends list with bulimia/anorexia binge/purge type discussing the effects of their disorder on their teeth, but I've not heard people with eating disorders who don't purge discussing it and I was wondering if I was the only person (who doesn't purge) to have found my teeth are falling apart!
