Anemia Causing Dental Problems?????

Hi Everyone:

Haven't posted in a while. I am on my second dose of IV venofur, still with no real reason why I am anemia. I have a few other medical issues and I am always trying to figure out if everything is related.

Currently I have had many dental problems with my teeth fracturing and needing to have them pulled and implants placed.

Do you think there could be any possible connection, that the anemia is causing problems with my teeth. Has anyone had anything like this happen.

I could be totally wrong, but just trying to understand why certain things are happening.

Thanks for listening and for any info.

When I'm anemic I grind my teeth at night, I wonder if that's what you're doing and causing the trouble?

Yes anything that causes anemia can effect teeth, bones, hair.

I use a mouth guard at night and I am getting one to wear during the day. All the stress is hard on the body. I hope it works. I dont have insurance so this is cheaper than having all the dental problems. Good luck.
