Teeth Deteriorating + Hyperthyroidism??

Long story short, I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism 2+ years ago (I'm 19 now) and before I was diagnosed had gorgeous teeth.. I am a frequent brusher, flosser and rinser (listerine) 2x daily, but ever since I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism, it seemed as though my teeth started to deteriorate faster then any normal teenager.. I'm currently suffering from the worst toothache of life which is probably going to be pulled out soon and my other teeth are more then likely going to be pulled out eventually as well due to the extremely fast decay they are experiencing..
I just want to know, has anyone else had problems such as these? Thanks

I think it can happen in Graves disease if left untreated. It can lead to bone loss and would make your teeth weaker. Are you on meds? Have you had your calcium level checked?

I have Hasimoto's disease and hypothyroid and before I was diagnosed my teeth & gums took a nose dive. Extreme periodontal disease, [gums], and root canals, etc. Never had any problems before, always had strong good teeth, no decay, etc. Anyway, after getting thyroid levels straightened out and some time to heal, ... no more problems! Good luck to you!
