Anyone With Celiac Ever Have Braces?

Recommended Posts

My teeth are pretty bad, they have been shifting alot past 9 months or so. I just got off gluten a few weeks ago. Just wondering if anyone has had braces? I want to get them but im not sure if it would matter if my teeth are going to keep shifting when the braces get removed. Maybe im wrong. Do teeth keep shifting even when your off gluten?

Son tested negative-bloodwork (8/07), intestinal issues prompted biospy (3/08), results negative, but very positive dietary response, Dr. diagnosed Celiac disease (3/8)

Awesome. I know they would keep shifting if you don't wear your retainer for anyone in general but I just wasnt sure if a celiac kept having the problem all their life.

Not regular metal braces, but Invisilines to correct my crooked lower front teath. After years of dental damage from undiagnosed celiac disease (finally diagnosed at age 56), my lower teeth were misshapen and crooked. After 12 months of invisiline aligners (which were changed once a month, I now just wear Invisiline retainers when I sleep. If I forget to put them in at night, I can make up a few hours (when I'm home) the next day. My smile is no longer crooked!


Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.
