Celiac Disease and Mineralization Disturbances of Permanent Teeth
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I foundedÂ The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams

Celiac.com 05/08/2003 - In a study from Finland in 1986 it was shown that celiac disease was often associated with tooth enamel defects of permanent teeth. This study also showed a strong association between the time of gluten challenge in the diagnostic procedure and enamel defects. In the current study, dental examinations were carried out for a group of 40 children and adolescents suffering from celiac disease diagnosed according to the criteria of The European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (ESPGAN) at the Department of Pediatrics, Hospital of Uddevalla, Sweden. A control group made of 40 healthy children of the same age, sex and living area was examined in the same way. The results failed to show disturbances of the same type, degree of severity or frequency as was reported in Finland and no statistically significant differences concerning enamel defects were found between the patients with celiac disease and the controls.
