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.

    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
    • You should see a GI specialist before you go gluten free.  They should do a upper endoscopy to check for celiac damage.  Colonoscopy won't show anything related to celiac.  Also no you should not feel worse on gluten free, you should feel better.
