Do Teeth Improve After Eliminating Gluten?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know gluten is a problem for me, but I tested negative for celiac with 2 blood tests. I'm awaiting the results of an intestinal biopsy. One symptom I have that I attribute to the effects of gluten is bad teeth (eroding enamel and teeth that break easily- 2 in the past 11 months). Did anyone experience an improvement in dental health after going gluten free, or has the damage already een done?

Mine improved....gums and teeth...my teeth were never yellow, but did always have not quite bright white coloring...just noticed recently that my teeth are whiter than they were before -- had one tooth chip repaired just before removing gluten four years ago and it no longer matches my brighter whiter teeth.

 

The gum improvement is what I really appreciate -- had horrid gums for years that had no explanation -- well until I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

I've have lots of cavities all my life, now I know why. I just noticed my gums are much healthier since going gluten-free, thanks for bringing this up!!

This is such a comfort to read! I had a pretty extreme gum graph when I was 18, about four years after symptoms began showing up (though I didn't get diagnosed until last month) and gum issues over all and knowing that those could be related is great!

Yes! My gums don't bleed when I floss now, and they used to bleed every single time. Also, whiter teeth

Hi

I have loads of fillings (from past) in spite of lots of care of my teeth and tooth pain (like sensitive teeth hot/cold) but from any food. Dentist could find nothing wrong but has gone completely gluten free  :rolleyes: .

I also have horizontal ridges across my front teeth from dodgy enamel. (Dentist looked at me like I had two heads when I suggested it could be from celiac :blink: )! Beginning to wonder if dentists are on a par with doctors :ph34r: .
