I don't really know the answer to your question specifically, but celiac can cause issues with your teeth. My almost 7 year old son has tooth enamal problems with his two bottom permanent 6 year molars. They came in looking weird, parts normal color and parts that were tan colored. I was concerned and the dentist agreed that it was enamal defects probably related to his celiac (he was diagnosed at almost 6) and having a lot of antibiotics. One of them even came in with a cavity in it. The dentist had a hard time filling it because the tooth structure was so week that it was crumbling. He hasn't got the top two in yet and has yet to loose any of his baby teeth. He has had about 6 cavities and fillings in his baby teeth already too. His bottom front two incisors are a little loose and I'm concerned about what the adult teeth are going to be like. I have a sneaking suspicion that he will need some restorative and cosmetic dental work. I'm not 100% positive but I think I have read some threads(quite some time ago) that some people were having gum issues and some reported improvement with that. Try searching the forum and see what you can find.

I don't know. Have you seen your dentist? Gum inflammation can cause them to recede and if you can get a referral or an apointment with a peridontist they might be able to help.

@frieze: Vitamin D worked for you or are you just saying to get some in general?

I got some Vitamin D3 on order and I got an appointment for a cleaning and filling in Feb (insurance dosent kick in til then)

Hopefully my teeth stop twisting and turning. I dont know if braces would matter if they are just going to keep moving once the braces are removed.

You could ask your dentist about the orthodontia I don't know if braces would help or not. Perhaps a retainer? Don't know. A periodontist deals with gum issues and they might be able to do something if the wigglies are being caused by gum recession rather than bone loss.

The D3 may help and make sure you are getting enough calcium.

Vitamin C is one of the most important nutrients for healthy teeth and gums. It is an antioxidant that reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system to help fight bacteria that cause infection and heals the gums.

Eat plenty of foods that are rich in vitamin C such as citrus fruits, spinach and broccoli to obtain enough of this essential nutrient for healthy teeth and gums. You may also want to supplement your diet with 250 to 500 milligrams of vitamin C per day.

Essential Nutrients for Healthy Teeth and Gums - Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 is a powerful antioxidant and another of the essential nutrients for healthy teeth and gums. It will drastically reduce the amount of free radicals causing damage to the gums. Your body produces coenzyme Q10 on its own but as you age, you'll produce less. You may want to supplement your diet with 60 - 100 milligrams of coenzyme Q10 per day.

Essential Nutrients for Healthy Teeth and Gums - Calcium

We all know calcium as one of the essential nutrients for healthy teeth and gums. A deficiency of calcium can weaken the teeth and the bones that hold them in place. You can increase your intake of this essential nutrient by easting dark, leafy greens, and low fat dairy products. You may also want to take a supplement if you fear you aren't getting enough calcium. Take two 600 milligram tablets, one in the morning and one in the evening, to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

I've also heard magnesium to help-

Also,

If y ou have GERD or ACID REFLUX that can do great damage to your teeth & gums and cause reallyyyy bad breath

Thanks for the info Heidi. I have been taking vitamin C for a while and just got some vitamin D3 today. I never heard of Coenzyme Q10. I will have to look it up.

EDIT: How much vitamin D3 should I be taking? I got 1000 IU caps. I read if you take to much it could cause cancer. 2000 IU a day should be fine?
