Bulimia wrecked my teeth, what do I do now?

Iam 21 and have terrible teeth, someone 99 probably has better looking teeth than me, it really affects my everyday life and makes it unable to talk to people. I have a extreme phobia of the dentist due to bad experiences as a young child, meaning I haven’t been in over 10years, also I had bulimia at school resulting in a mixture of these means I don’t have 1 nice tooth, since Iam only young I know my teeth will only get worse so please advice me on how to over come this fear because I know i need to act soon.

Hello, well done for starting to get help for your problem .
If you can get to a dentist to at least let someone have a look that would be a start .
Your experiences as a young child have left bad memories , but as an adult these experiences don’t have to be repeated .
dentists are trained to recognize that bulimia may damage teeth , but only by having them looked at can you find out the facts about the condition of your teeth .
