First dental cleaning since gluten free.

I think I react to the toothpaste used at the dentist. Or maybe I react to gluten which they scrape off my teeth. At any rate I have noticed that my abdomen bloats and my gums bleed after having my teeth clean.

Does anyone know what precautions I should take?

I think my teeth have cleaned off some on their own. It has been a couple of years since I allowed my teeth cleaned professionaly. I always thought there was some disconnect. The hygentist would always say that I should do such and so to brush my teeth properly. They would go through the same speech each time. Oh, it is horribly unmotivating. Now, I hope I can go in there and let them know how to help someone else with unknown celiac.

The dentist actually thought 5 years back that I might have an auto immune disease. I never checked into it. I did do something about my health though. Why fix your teeth when you are dying? I felt like I must be falling apart from my inside out. What should a dentist do if he suspects such a thing? How about a paper handout?

Check the ingredients in the toothpaste or other compounds the dentist uses before allowing.  Many dental products contain corn based ingredients. 

All the best,

Oh, that is likely. I have already told them I would like straight grit! Calcium Carbonate, I think.

I am wondering if anyone else does all there dentist says only to get the very same lectures the next time?

This time after the usual stuff, the hygentist said that sometimes when ones body doesn’t absorb nutrients well there is too much calcium… in the saliva. She said that my deposits were only where my saliva puddles.

Bingo, I think she has finally got it!
