Questions About Teeth Problems.

I know Rachel has said that her TMJ quit when she went gluten-free.

I have had TMJ for well over 25 years, everytime I go to the dentist for work they have to put me out because of the pain from the TMJ. Now, I have had to go to the dentist 2 times a week in the last month. First we filled a tooth and the filling immediately came out. So, he drilled deeper and put a bigger filling in, which is the way of what is left of my teeth that I have left. Well that absessed instantly to such a painful point it had to be pulled out. I am still on antibiotics and it has been over a week since it was pulled. I have been back twice last week and going back today again. My mouth hurts so much and I still have pain in the place where the tooth is missing. This is the longest this has ever gone on for with a tooth. I am concerned because I have lost over 11 teeth in less than 5 years and 4 of those teeth were last year.

I was wondering if any of you confirmed Celiacs have this lasting pain problem etc., before or after you have been gluten-free.

Thanks so much,

Rusla

I have lost a phenominal amount of teeth in the last five years. Now, I have had an ongoing tooth problem for over a month. One filling came out, they drilled deepered and put in the second one and then the tooth instantly absessed. I am on antibiotics and the tooth was pulled a week ago and my mouth still hurts and there is pain where the tooth was, they have x-rayed it to see that it was all out. Do or did any of you have these kind of probleems before or after gluten-free?

Also before the discovery of the Hashimoto's my urine had a nasty peculiar smell to it, there shows no infection per se. However, even with the synthroid it has not disappeared. So once again the question is the same as above.

Thanks,

Rusla

Hi my celiac friends.

I am also going to the dentist because of a tooth problem. I will say this -- I have read that loss of tooth enamel is common in C D. I have experieced it. It's painful. But I noticed -- Rusla -- you are on thyroid medication. I read when your T's I think it's T4 is too high it causes tooth loss tooth problems... and my T4 was off the chart just before this problem.

Now the dentist wants me to take antibiotic before the root canal and crown. Any ideas anyone?

I'm wondering what I can take ANTIBIOTIC that will not kill me.

I was diagnosed with TMJ in college. And I've noticed a definite decline in my teeth, which used to always be excellent. Got my first crown last year. I attributed it to being on prednisone. I was also diagnosed with osteopenia, so I figured if my bones were suffering, my teeth would, too. Since I've turned my health around for the better, my bone density has improved.

I've been terrified lately with tooth pain and reciding/itch gums in the last couple months since I actually went gluten-free. I always had perfect teeth, now I'm afraid I'm going to end up losing them. My mouth is so dry no matter how much water I drink!

I responded on your other post about this subject. Do check with the dentist to make sure you're not just finding a gluten-free antibiotic, but a gluten-free antibiotic that is appropriate for this type of work.

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
