Getting Ready For Dental Visit

Recommended Posts

It has been an VERY long time since I have posted. Another of the boys has been diagnosed with another unheard of disorder(s) so I have been busy researching and learning about that.

Anyway, Cooper desperately needs to go to the dentist. He has a few cavities that need to get fixed. I am wondering what do we need to look for gluten-wise in a dental visit?

Thanks for the help....Dallas

sorry to be noisy but I am curious what is the unheard of disorder you mentioned?

I have no idea about the dentist, we haven't had our visit yet since going gluten free.


Janel (me): gluten-free since 4/10/07; casien free 5/1/07;soy light 10/07

**LOST 35 lbs since April 2007(much needed weight loss)**

ds(6 yrs)- gluten-free since 3/19/07; casein free 5/2/07;soy free 10/07

HLA-DQ 3,3 (Subtype 7,7)

new dx= Hirschsprungs Disease w/cecostomy

the non believers, only allergen free eatting at home because they have to be:

Hubby: refuses to eat Gluten-free Casein-free except for dinner

dd(14 yrs)- refuses to go along with any special dietary retrictions *I suspect dairy/wheat intollerant*

I just went to the dentist and the hygenist called about the cleaner they use and it was gluten free. You may want them to call the manufacturer of the cleaner and go from there. I also had a cavity filled and there was no gluten in the filling or anesthesia.

Now using a small amount of low-lactose dairy such as aged cheeses and yogurt. Yum!

Jake was diagnosed with verbal apraxia, dysarthria, motor apraxia, coordination disorder, sensory integration disorder and hypotonia. They are not unheard of...but they sure were to our family. He has a lot of soft signs of neurological problems...but nothing that they can pin point. Autism and Asperger's have been ruled out. Jake just works in a different way!

So the Celiac, while still being very much a part of our lives, has taken a back seat to learning about Jake's issues. I was just needing the dentist info since we haven't had to deal with a dental visit and the Celiac dx's yet.

Please don't think you were being nosey!

Hi,

I have a list of gluten-free dental products on my website- mostly in-office dental products including prophy pastes, flourides, etc. YOu can print it out or refer your dentist or hygienist to check the products that they use. The most commonly used products are listed, so it is a good chance they will know of them or use them.

Sorry I can't post the site here but it is on my profile page.

Good Luck,

Let me know if you have any questions,

Jule

My son also has many of the issues your son has. We did an MRI and found out he has some damage to his brain(cerebral palsy) in the area that controls speech & sensory. If you haven't done so already I'd recommend a neurologist visit with an MRI.
