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.

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
