So what can you do to support the health of your mouth? Here are some actionable tips for optimal oral health:

Avoid gluten: one of the most straightforward tactics is simply to remove gluten from your diet, just as you would to manage other manifestations of celiac disease

Avoid antibacterial mouthwashes: just like antibiotics, antibacterial mouthwashes can’t tell the difference between good and bad bacteria and just kill it all. This can damage the balance of bacteria in your oral microbiome and ultimately do more harm than good

Take probiotics: probiotics can not only help support the balance of bacteria in your gut, they can also support the balance of bacteria in your mouth, lowering the chance of bad breath, cavities, gum disease and even tooth loss

Avoid acidic foods: if oral lesions exist, acidic foods can exacerbate discomfort and inhibit healing.

Try intermittent fasting: intermittent fasting allows you to limit the amount of sugars and other particles in your mouth, and the time they spend there. This helps to naturally reduce the amount of bacteria that causes plaque, which can lead to inflammation of the gums. Keeping your mouth free of food for 12-16 hours or more also gives your mouth a break and allows it time to heal any sores or lesions that exist. Keeping your mouth free of food for 16 to 24 hours is like a daily detox for the gums and teeth.

Consider nutrient testing and supplementation: since celiac disease and gluten sensitivity can lead to nutritional deficiencies which can exacerbate oral health concerns, consider testing your levels of key nutrients and supplementing as needed to get your levels back into healthy ranges where needed.

Test for food sensitivities: your sensitivities may extend beyond gluten. Ask your doctor for a comprehensive food sensitivity test to identify other foods that may be contributing to compromised health – whether in your mouth, your gut, or elsewhere!
