Questions about Teeth

Does Adrenal Insufficency or Addison's disease, or thyroid problems affect your teeth cavity wise? I seem to be having big problems with lots of cavities all of the sudden and now it looks like one of my back teeth broke, and a horrible looking spot on the other side, and all of them hurt.

Just wondering. Calcium level normal when they checked it.

Re: Questions about Teeth

Is your mouth often dry? Saliva acts to move bacteria away from your teeth and down your throat.

Do you have frequent infections, shortness of breath when exercising or colds/flu that last a long time?

Re: Questions about Teeth

I am not sure or don't notice the dry mouth. As far as colds no, but I have had one now for over a week. I woke up at 3 am this morning, and my face is swollen and I am in so much pain with that one side. I am going to have to call the dentist today and see if they can take me early.

As far as your shortness of breath question, I don't know, I have been recovering for around 7 weeks since they found all this, so I have not been exercising to speak of.

My teeth are crap! I just had about 5 or 6 filling and still have 2 left! I had really nice teeth before. However, I am not sure if it from Addisons of when I had my son. I know that can play havic on your teeth as well. I oten get a sore throat. I am not sure! Kc
