this might sound like a silly question but i'm a little paranoid. i started a gluten-free diet a few weeks ago and i'm worried the small amount of tartar on my front teeth is counterproductive. i've read that dental plaque actually destroys the gliadin protein but i'm just not sure.

Hmm, I have never even thought of this, or heard anyone else mention it. I honestly wouldn't worry, but for piece of mind you could schedule a cleaning with the dentist. Make sure when you go, that they only use gluten free cleaning pastes and such.

Someone else might have another idea though

Welcome to the forum! hope we can be of help.

- Gluten-free since March 2009 (not officially diagnosed, but most likely Celiac). Symptoms have greatly improved or disappeared since.
- Soy intolerant. Dairy free (likely casein intolerant). Problems with eggs, quinoa, brown rice

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

As the other poster said if your concerned you may want to schedule a cleaning. I don't think it would be an issue but you could ask the hygenist to make sure to make frequent use of 'the sucky thing' when the cleaning is being done. For cleaning my dentist uses just plain pumice with no flavoring just to be on the safe side. Most everything your dentist will use will be safe but a good one will check on stuff before your appointment. Just give them a heads up a when you set up the appointment that they need to check.
