Do Teeth Improve After Eliminating Gluten?

Recommended Posts

I know gluten is a problem for me, but I tested negative for celiac with 2 blood tests. I'm awaiting the results of an intestinal biopsy. One symptom I have that I attribute to the effects of gluten is bad teeth (eroding enamel and teeth that break easily- 2 in the past 11 months). Did anyone experience an improvement in dental health after going gluten free, or has the damage already een done?

Mine improved....gums and teeth...my teeth were never yellow, but did always have not quite bright white coloring...just noticed recently that my teeth are whiter than they were before -- had one tooth chip repaired just before removing gluten four years ago and it no longer matches my brighter whiter teeth.

 

The gum improvement is what I really appreciate -- had horrid gums for years that had no explanation -- well until I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)

This is such a comfort to read! I had a pretty extreme gum graph when I was 18, about four years after symptoms began showing up (though I didn't get diagnosed until last month) and gum issues over all and knowing that those could be related is great!

Hi

I have loads of fillings (from past) in spite of lots of care of my teeth and tooth pain (like sensitive teeth hot/cold) but from any food. Dentist could find nothing wrong but has gone completely gluten free  :rolleyes: .

I also have horizontal ridges across my front teeth from dodgy enamel. (Dentist looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested it could be from celiac :blink: )! Beginning to wonder if dentists are on a par with doctors :ph34r: .
