Yes: It definitely can. See a dentist. They can help to reduce the risk of anything serious happening. The acids produced can wear the enamel of your teeth.

Erosion: Throwing up frequently will bathe your teeth in acids and this will erode the teeth.Work with a dentist to minimize this damage. Work with your doctors to decrease this behavior.
