I want to know who here has teeth problems, like me. I get tooth decay and one of my canines came out 6 months ago and is probably 25% grown in, I think it just stopped growing. The other canine just camel out last night and I noticed a hole in it :o My other teeth like molars came out a while ago and when I went to touch them they practicaly crumbled! Anyone have these problems or something related to them?

Celiacs often have teeth problems. I think it probably has to do with a lack of calcium and vitamin D due to the villi damage and malabsorption caused by gluten. I used to have at least one cavity almost everytime I went to the dentist. But after being on the diet for over a year, I went to the dentist and had no cavities! YAY!

Dragonqueen,

My son Ben has that problem with his teeth not growing. He lost a tooth about a year and a half ago and after about 6 months I told the dentist I was worried about it since it hadn't started growing back yet. They ended up putting a spacer in and only now is it starting to grow back after a year and a half, only it still hasn't broken through the gums yet, but Ben can feel it there...Some of his other teeth have grown very slowly also, and he has had problems with decay, teeth growing in behind other teeth and the list goes on...

All three of my kids and I have almost NO enamel on our teeth. We all have tons of crowns, even my daughter who is 6 has about 5 crowns on her little teeth, plus tons of other dental work that she has had done...But the good news for me is that like Carrie, after a year and a half gluten-free I just recently had my teeth cleaned and I had no new cavities! I don't think I have ever had a visit in my entire life where I didn't have at least one cavity (and usually more!). My teeth are also less sensitive than they used to be. I had a cleaning and it wasn't painful! That is a first for me for at least the last 10 years!

Just hang in there, your teeth might be able to repair themselves a little bit. Make sure that you are getting enough calcium and also magnesium. Without a good amount of magnesium your body won't absorb very much of the calcium and it is extremely important for you right now.

God bless,

Mariann

P.S. did you get our e-mails? Ben is waiting to hear back from you. :)

Hello.

I also had problems with my teeth my whole life. If you can believe this one I actually had two baby teeth until I was 25 yrs. old. The permanants never grew!. They stayed in until the dentist had to remove the molars behind them. As a result on that extraction my "baby" teeth no longer had support,so instead of only loosing 2 teeth that day I wound up loosing 4.

Never knew that it might have anything to do with gluten.What do you!!!!

I already have two bottom bridges and need two top ones. The two bridges the dentist put in are given me problems (not the dentist fault) one of the molars that anchors the bridge needs a root canal I said "no!! No more root canals for me.The other side is now sensitive. I have a front tooth capped. The whole proceesed has stopped because now I need to see the orthaodontist.

When I turned 30, I asked the dentist to pull my remaing teeth. He said no and that the insurance would not cover it. I had too many remaing "good teeth"

Because I had such problems I was extremely careful with my childrens teeth. I brushed them myself until they were two and gave vitamin supplements. I think this has helped my 12 yr. old who is also gluten intolerant. Plus today you kids are lucky, most schools and dentist offer sealants now which offers a lot of protection.

I am sick of going to the dentist. Thank goodness they have gotten better with pain relief. When I was younger I dreaded going!!!

This was never offered, and when I asked one of our dentists about it, they said that the sealants wouldn't help my childs teeth due to the area where the cavities were. The sealant only covers certain areas of the teeth. I wonder if they had went ahead and put the sealant on if it might have made a difference.

Our teeth are so bad it is almost like they were rotting from the inside out. Mine have gotten much better since going gluten-free.

My moms teeth were literally crumbling apart in her mouth at 40 years old! And her bones were like an 80 year old woman who didn't take calcium supplements...I am pretty sure I got the Celiac from her. She died at age 44 though, so we will never know.

God bless,

Mariann

I dont even have wisdom teeth (an xray proves it) and they were never pulled out. They just never grew! Also when I was a baby, the first teeth I had were completely black. When I got my adult teeth, the dentist put sealants on the back molars and I still got cavitites. I always brushed and flossed my teeth and didnt eat many sugary things. Also my front teeth turned out to me white on the tips and jaggedy. Is this because of Celiac?

Well I'm pretty sure that all my other baby teeth beside my molars fell out (except for a few that have already fallen out.) Ya slow growth seems to be my main problem right now and vitamin defenciancy.

My son's teeth look terrible, but once again, the dentist assures me they're fine. She even took xrays and looked at the new teeth coming in and said it all looks good. No cavities, no enamal problems that she can see. I can't believe it, but I guess I have to at this point. I'm thankful, but I was sure there were problems due to the polka dotted nature of his teeth. He has a lot of sensitivity, but she gave us a prescription toothpaste to try for a month. She said his adult teeth may be stronger. I wish they would test infants for Celiac disease as it would prevent SO MANY potential problems. It's completely unnerving to be the mother of a late dxd Celiac child. You spend years looking for the consequences of the delayed dx.

    • It's no secret that nearly all traditionally brewed beers contain barley. The flavor and body barley imparts on traditional beers is partly responsible for their rich, full taste. Finding alternatives to barley that are suitable for brewing gluten-free beer has been a challenge. One solution has been to brew beers with traditional barley ingredients, and then use a combination of enzyme action and filtration to render a final product that test below 20ppm gluten required for gluten-free products.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask
