Teeth Grinding (bruxism)

Recommended Posts

I've been grinding my teeth for a while now.I've been wondering if it's Celiac related?

I've been on a gluten free diet for the last 5 weeks and I'm still doing it.I was wondering if I 'am lacking a certain mineral or vitamin?

Thanks

Dear Charlieswpa,

I heard this could be gluten related. I think I grind mine as well. I used to have good teeth. All of the sudden, the past few years or so, my teeth seem to be chipping off by the day. I have bad TMJ and my jaw is extremely misaligned. This is a big problem, because my teeth are also really crooked. I know I could have malabsorbtion issues, and lack of vitamins plays a role. I have excruciating jaw pain and headaches because of this a lot.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

P.S. If your jaw pops and is misaligned, the dentist can get you a mouth guard called a splint.

I don't know if it's Celiac related, but I have been diagnosed (by an ENT) with TMJ. I also grind my teeth at night.

I was fitted for a mouth guard by my dentist. It is small, fits perfectly, and has helped quite a bit. :)

I'm supposed to wear it most of the time, but I only use it at night. :ph34r:

Dear NoGluGirl,

Thanks for the information.I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 10 years ago

but wasn't staying on a gluten free diet until recently( almost 6 weeks).I hoping the longer I stay on it,it will make my grinding go away.I heard low Magnesium affects your muscles.

How long have you been on a gluten free diet? Do you ever cheat on your diet?

Thanks

Dear Charlieswpa,

You are welcome for the info! I have been gluten free since August of last year, so it has been six months! I cannot cheat, because I have a violent reaction to gluten. I get really nauseated, break out in a sweat, get diarrhea, start shaking, sometimes my hands go numb, and if I am lucky, swallow a Promethazine before dry heaves hit that make me feel like my insides are emploding. Cheating is NOT tempting! Unfortunately, my parents often gluten me because they are not gluten free.

At least, I was doing great for the first two months or so, but I saw my doctor recently who said Celiacs cannot tolerate dairy a lot either, so I am going to have to give that up. I bet she is right! I did not eat dairy the first couple of months at all. Casein intolerance is a common problem with Celiac.

As far as Magnesium goes, it does affect the muscles. You are right. It can cause muscle pain and jerking. I have twitches, but could have Lyme disease even. Until I can afford testing, I won't know much of anything about that. Though I miss a lot of foods I used to eat, I must say I view gluten as poison. I have rewired my brain to think of Cheez - Its and other things I no longer can eat as Raid. That way, I just go right past it and find something I am allowed! It makes it automatic. I do suffer from food lust, though. I had a dream the other night about spaghetti and huge meatballs with ragu sauce! It was wonderful! The first time I ate spaghetti where it could not make me fat or sick! LOL!

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

I used to clench my teeth so badly that I would wake up in the morning with jaw pain. I also had severe TMJ and misaligned jaws, until I had braces from the ages of 44 to 47. After that I had a mouthguard/retainer. I still have it, but don't really need it now, as I stopped clenching my teeth. It took over a year on the gluten-free diet before I stopped clenching my teeth, though.

I also take vitamins and minerals, as well as desiccated adrenal and desiccated thyroid (because of adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism, probably related to undiagnosed celiac disease for most of my life). After I started taking those, the clenching started getting better.

Does anyone know why there might be a connection between teeth grinding and celiac disease?? - my coeliac son ground down some of his molars so bad he had to have crowns on them :unsure:

I think indirectly it is related to celiacs, yet it's the vitamin and mineral deficiencies that cause it and/or TMJ. It's not specific to celiac disease. Celiac disease opens the door for all these other ailments to walk in. I do not grind my teeth, but I do clench my jaw. Used to be only at night, now I catch myself doing it during the day, especially when I am very stressed out.

Hi NoGluGirl,

When I first got the symptoms of Celiac disease I was very sick like you especially

when I ate dairy.I don't drink milk anymore but still use butter and cheese.The disease didn't really bother me that much lately except being anemic,dry skinned and occasionally diarrhea with clay colored stools.But I know it was doing damage within.I always taken a multi vitamin Centrum which I beleived it has helped me.I'am going to go off this diet in a few months and get retested again to be 100% sure that I have it.Years ago after all the testing I went throught the doctor wasn't a 100% sure

I have Celiac disease.

You can still have your spaghetti and meatballs. There is spaghetti made out of rice that you can use and you can made your own sauce to besure it's gluten free.I feel sorry for you being so young having to go through this.Someday there will be a cure for this or there will be a gluten free wheat.

A another thing is I bought some Tom Sawyer's all purpose gluten free flour on it's web site and I make my own breads,cookies and cakes.You know what's funny? I owned a pizza shop for 5 years.

Have a great Sunday!

Dear Charlie,

I have some rice noodles I got from the Chinese Market. They are always great. Really, this is the best place to get sweet rice and regular rice flours too. It is much cheaper! I only pay $1 or a little more for what you would have go pay much more for at the healthfood store. Merchants are great about helping you read ingredient labels if you need them to. Normally, they have them in English too, now.

I was tested for Celiac in 2000 and tested negative for antibodies. However, my doctor believes I am Celiac. She has had a handful of patients like me who improved after abandoning gluten. She does not rely too heavily on the testing like many other doctors do. She takes a more common sense approach. I think my biopsy either showed something and they missed it back in 2001,(they missed my gallbladder) or I was just too young to show the damage yet. I am not sure which. You know how you owned a pizza place? I used to work at Taco Bell for a short while as a teen! How is that for irony?

Getting back to bruxism, I have clenched my jaw something awful. Ursa Major mentioned this. DarlinDeb has the same difficulties I do. I need to start taking vitamins. I was anemic at one time, and even now, feel rundown if I do not eat meat. Thanks for the info on the all purpose gluten free flours. I am going to check it out. Also, I have been to the Chocolate Emporium that makes casein free, gluten free cake mixes and candies. Their mixes are great! Go to www.choclat.com to see. They even have chocolate perfume!

Dear NikkiUK,

The connection with Celiac and bruxism is likely the vitamin deficiencies. So many of us have malabsorbtion issues. We cannot get what we need out of food due to the nutrients not being taken in. Muscle tremors can manifest from Magnesium deficiencies, as can heart palpitations. Calcium deficiencies can cause those symptoms too. I know I need to begin taking at least a B-Vitamin complex and magnesium. I want to take a multivitamin, but do not know of any that do not have iron (it upsets my stomach) and are gluten free.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Ok thanks NoGluGirl!!

Interesting theory! I hope that the longer my son is gluten-free the less likely he is to grind - and if his weight gain is anything to go by in the 5 months he's been gluten-free I'd say he's definitely absorbing better :)

I'm a dentist, and their are actually relations to teeth grinding and celiac diease. I would encourage you to see your dentist and have a night appliance made. I recommend them to my patients who have symptoms with their teeth grinding, i have never had any of my patients not like the appliances i've made. They help alot!

Dear January Flower,

Thanks for the input! I know getting one would help me a lot. Clenching your jaw is a real painful thing. The dentist I saw a while back had me bite down to check my bite, and every time he said "Ouch!" I am thinking "How do you think I feel?" LOL! It turns out, my jaw is so badly misaligned, that the pad that connects your jaw up near your ear is actually scraping bone against bone on me! I bite my jaw a lot as well.

Dear NikkiUK,

Thank you for the compliments! It is complicated at times. Nutrients are something that are essential for everything. We often neglect to think about them. This never is good.

Dear Paula,

Thanks for the info on vitamins. I will see if our health food store has those. I need something. I do not know if I have malabsorption issues or not. I think I might. Fats do not set well because of my gallbladder being out.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Thanks for replying to this web site !

I was wondering since your a dentist did your teachers( professors) tell you anything about Celiac disease and what it does to the enamel of the tooth? I'm sure if this could be spotted in children

then this could help parents get their children evaluated.I had this when I was a kid but Celiac disease wasn't known back then.Maybe you could check this with your patients in the future.

Thanks

The truth is Celiac diease affects so many people differently that its hard to nail down direct links to the diease and dentistry. We do know that malabsorption is a huge factor in causing dental enamel abnormalities, as well as in people with vitamen Deficiencies.

People with malformed enamel can be also caused by heredity traits, and if you were sick say with a fever for example when you were around the age your teeth buds were forming you can also have a yellowish ring around the base of your back molars. Certain medications can also cause defects in emamel, or medications your mother took with pregnant with you.

The main thing is take care of your teeth, especially having Celiac its very true in saying oral health is overall health!

Dear January Flower,

I have a question about bad teeth. I had good teeth up until several years ago. All of the sudden, my teeth keep breaking off. Is it possible I am grinding them down? Or, is it the Celiac disease? I never had a cavity until a few years ago. Could it be a product of malabsorption? I am so scared I will lose my teeth!

Sincerely,

I've been grinding my teeth for a while now.I've been wondering if it's Celiac related?

I've been on a gluten free diet for the last 5 weeks and I'm still doing it.I was wondering if I 'am lacking a certain mineral or vitamin?

Thanks

Hi Charlieswpa,

Have you used a mouth guard for grinding your teeth? I am not sure if it is directly related to Celiac, but I would recommend checking out mouth guards online. I just purchased a mouth guard from the company, TotalGard online. My grinding (bruxism) has stopped and I feel great.

I never knew that TMJ was connected to celiac. I got diagnosed with TMJ 9 years ago. The mouth guards do not help. They made things worse for me. The only thing that has helped is muscle relaxers. I have also done accupunture for it and that helped also.

I just read a book about TMJ and it said to keep cotton in your mouth during the day so you don't clench your teeth. Don't do it at night. It is a choking hazard. The book also said to alternate cold and heat on the jaw muscles.

I really don't think anything helps TMJ. It is just something I have had to live with.

This is me exactly. I was just diagnosed Celiac and I have been grinding my teeth for about 6 years. It has been getting worse. For most of that time I have had a nightguard, and I use that religiously. But still, I grind all night loudly enough to wake my husband, and then many days I suffer from terrible tension headaches that turn into migraines. Migraine medication helps at that point, but NOTHING has helped the grinding. I was just prescribed muscle relaxants, which I pray will help me. This is all on top of terrible joint pain caused by the Celiac.

anyone in this thread drink coffee??

im also thinking that other vasoconstrictors may have alot to do with the whole teeth grinding thing i have not had a problem with this for the last few months but recently after a bad run in with some gluten infected belgian chocolates

ive had mouth probs all week and my teeth are sore and the inside of my mouth is liek cotton mouth, very tender. no canker sores thank god (yet anyway) but its back to being a pain.. when i havent had this happen for some time...

then again i havent been glutened in some time either... been doing really well. avoiding bad foods... until xmas time..

Vasoconstrictors:

Amphetamines

antihistamines

Cocaine

LSD

LSA

Methylphenidate

Oxymetazoline

Phenylephrine

Pseudoephedrine

Stimulants

Caffeine

Tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride (in eye drops)

Psilocybin

nicotine is also a vasoconstrictor..

as are most decongestants + antihistamines..

anyone here in this thread using decongestants?? they are probably causing the teeth grinding..thats what im

putting 2+2 together to figure out from my own research...

sudafed? benedryl? ephedrine? anyone?
