So, I went to the Dentist today for a regular cleaning. I usally go once a year or every six months, whatever the Dentist usually says to do. The last time I went (about a year ago), I had one cavity and had it filled. I haven’t had any problems, and I’ve been on strict SCD since April 2010… so I figured, with no sugary foods, and eating as healthy as I do, there should be no cavities, right?
WRONG!!!!!! I had 10! that’s right, 10 cavities! I brush and floss religiously too. I asked if it could me the medication, they say no, but I’m thinking it’s the prednisone—somehow.
Does anyone else have this issue? Do you know if it’s related to IBD or the medications we take in any way. This is really frustrating for me. I take really, really good care of my teeth.
