Dental Problems?

Recommended Posts

Anyone here experience dental problems, ie. bad teeth no matter how hard you try? I brush my teeth a lot, and still, I have a holes in my teeth. I did some research and found an article that links the malabsorption of celiac disease to weakening of the enamel in teeth. Just curious if any others have experienced bad teeth and think it may be a result of celiac disease.

Thanks. :)

I had a tooth crack. It was during period when I had ribs crack on 3 different occasions. Probably due to calcium problems due to celiac disease.

I also have gum recession for as yet unknown reasons.

My older son had no less than 12 cavities on his first dentist appointment, and I am a tooth brushing Nazi. He should not have had all those cavities. At the time, the dentist told me that I gave my son too much fruit juice. :angry: What??? Candy, I would've understood (had I given him much, but everyone said I was a meany because I wouldn't let my kids have any candy.) ...but this little boy has 12 cavities from too much (100%) fruit juice!? Puh-leeze.

Yep. I was a teeth-brushing Nazi, too, and my daughter has had endless cavities. She hasn't had a checkup since dx so I'll be interested to see.

We did get her some of that Listerine that shows blue where more brushing is necessary, but they took it off the market because it wasn't safe for people with compromised immune systems. Kinda stinks because she really brushed well with that stuff.

Luke's pediatric dental specialist told me to have him swish every night with ACT for kids. It's a flouride rinse, though, not an antiseptic or anything. She said it might help build his enamel back up, which I've since heard is impossible... At the time, I didn't know enough to ask her why his enamel wasn't up to par to begin with. Now, of course I know it's from Celiac.

We tried the blue stuff at one point, but it would never show up on his teeth! I have no idea why :ph34r:

Ive not been tested for gluten intolerence but i am suspecting that is whats causeing my symptoms.
