Celiac Disease And Oral Connection

Posted on 7/4/2022 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
Celiac Disease And Oral ConnectionCeliac disease manifests in ways which are similar to effects of too much fluoride. They are much more than gastrointestinal problems. It may be confusing on whether to visit the dentist or the gastroenterologist. We are going to discuss their effects on the body and other parts.

Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is an irritation in the teeth that is autoimmune-induced. Gluten can be found in wheat, barley and other foods. Some gluten cosmetics for the skin and teeth may also cause an autoimmune reaction. Celiac disease is hereditary and mostly among white females. Among children, celiac disease may cause weight loss, delay in tooth eruption, enamel defects, and stained teeth. The signs among adults include bloating, weight loss, osteoporosis, miscarriage, and infertility, muscle cramping and skin rashes. Celiac disease has a tendency of decreasing the healing ability of individual. Tooth extraction is the most likely approach to the disease. Patients need to be educated on how to rehabilitate themselves and take care of their teeth.

Celiac disease can be easily likened to dental enamel problems the problem is particularly common among children. The presence of some dental deficiencies could be signs of celiac disease. Some dental problems closely related to celiac disease include tooth discoloration, pitting and banding of teeth, poor enamel formation, and mottled teeth. The problems often appear on the incisors and are symmetrical. Celiac teeth defects are permanent and cannot be improved by the adoption of diets that are gluten-free.

Professional Review

Celiac disease cases are growing especially in the West. Interdisciplinary collaboration is advised so that the disease can be studied more and better steps taken to treat it. Due to its almost hidden signs patients may not be able to notice it .Medical history checks on patients as well as family checks could help doctors detect it. We advise patients who may have the symptoms above to visit our professionals for more tests and care.
