    Celiac.com 03/15/2019 - A number of studies have shown a correlation between dental enamel defects and the presence of celiac disease. The connection opens up a possible avenue for dentists to help diagnose celiac disease by noticing dental symptoms and making a referral for celiac evaluation. Celiac.com has done a few articles on this subject over the years.

    Now, periodontal teams looking to remain on the cutting-edge of comprehensive dentistry are taking course-work on the impact of celiac disease on dental health.

    One such team, board-certified periodontists, Drs. Sam Bakuri and Mark J. Weingarden of Pittsburgh, PA, recently completed a course on the impact of celiac disease and dental health with members of their team at Greater Pittsburgh Dental Implants & Periodontics. 

    Led by Cynthia Kupper, RD, celiac disease, CEO of the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), the training helped Drs. Bakuri and Weingarden to learn about dental issues commonly associated with celiac disease, such as enamel defects, cavities and frequent canker sores. 

    The training will help these dental professionals spot the dental effects of celiac disease early, before they can cause health or cosmetic issues later in life. It will also allow them to suggest appropriate dental options to improve the dental and general health of their patients.

    Anyone in the Pittsburgh area who wishes to discuss the dental health implications of celiac disease, along with possible treatment options, can contact Drs. Bakuri and Weingarden by phone at 412-201-0633. Learn more about the team at Greater Pittsburgh Dental Implants & Periodontics.

    Celiac.com 08/23/2013 - Previous studies have noted the presence of dental enamel defects in people with celiac disease.
    A team of researchers recently set out to study the prevalence of dental enamel defects in adults with celiac disease, and to determine if there is in fact a connection between the grade of teeth lesion and clinical parameters present at the time of diagnosis of celiac disease.
    The research team included L.Trotta, F. Biagi, P.I. Bianchi, A. Marchese, C. Vattiato, D. Balduzzi, V. Collesano, and G.R. Corazza.
    They are affiliated with the Coeliac Centre/First Department of Internal Medicine at the Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico...

    Celiac.com 02/08/2017 - Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune-mediated enteropathy, triggered by exposure to dietary gluten in genetically prone individuals. Celiac disease is also one of many gastrointestinal diseases that can have dental manifestations. In fact, distinct dental enamel defects are strong indicators of celiac disease, and may lead to a role for dentists in better celiac screening.
    While the disease often manifests in early childhood, a large number of patients are diagnosed over the age of 50. Despite increased awareness, the majority of patients still remain undiagnosed. Dentists should consider celiac disease when they observe certain...

    Celiac.com 08/09/2017 - There have been a number of studies showing a strong connection between celiac disease and dental enamel defects (DEDs), however, the exact relationship is still unclear.
    To get a better understanding, a team of researchers recently set out to evaluate DEDs in people with celiac disease by looking at how long it took them to begin a gluten-free diet (GFD).
    The research team included AM de Queiroz, J Arid, FK de Carvalho, RAB da Silva, EC Küchler, R Sawamura, LAB da Silva, and P Nelson-Filho.
    They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pediatric Dentistry, University of São Paulo - School of Dentistry of Ribeirão...

    Celiac.com 07/05/2018 - We’ve known for a while that dental enamel defects can be an indicator of celiac disease. Now, a new study has evaluated the pathological conditions of the stomatognathic system observed in celiac patients on a gluten-free diet, and found that non-specific tooth wear can be seen nearly 20% of celiac patients, while such wear is seen in just under 6% of non-celiac control subjects. 
    The data come from a team of researchers that recently set out to evaluate the pathological conditions of the stomatognathic system observed in celiac patients on a gluten-free diet. The research team included Massimo Amato, Fabiana Zingone, Mar...
