    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

I was wondering something about teeth.

One of my pointy teeth has always felt pourusbut since going gluten-free, I noticed that it appears to be getting smooth like the other teeth. Could this be because I can once again absorb calcium? Or could this be because I am out of my mind?

TIA

I could be wrong but from what I know of teeth formation the enamel is formed long before the teeth surface. Have you changed toothpastes recently? Another possibility is that you are seeing a change in the plaque development, the gluten response starts in the mucous membranes and some of us have a strong response in our salivary glands. The gluten-free diet may have changed the content and consistency of the saliva in your mouth enabling it to more completely remove the gluten residue from the teeth. This would make them feel smoother.
