    I have bad teeth, so horrible. My dentist said it probably is a result of lupus meds from his experience. It seems within a matter of a four years my teeth got so bad.

    Girl, mine suck BAD. I'm in-process of having my second bridge put in, and my third one is only months away. My teeth have sucked for years, regardless of my cleanings, dental visits, or home care. I'm there with you!

    P.S. - I'm on nothing but a high-dose NSAID. My aunt had Lupus as well, and she has full dentures at 51!
    Blessings,
    Carrie

    I have SLE and Sjorgrens and my teeth have held up...I am fortunate.

    I have 2 cleanings a year and have enamel brushed along my gumline twice a year...I use Crest Sensitive toothpaste or Sensodyne and mix it up with regular Crest paste. No whiteners of brightners...weakens the teeth.

    I have 6 crowns, but that is from not having fluorinated water while growing up, well water or fluoride toothpastes resulting in cavities. Once the fillings gave way, I've replaced them with crowns or with resin fillings.

    if you can, save your teeth, nothing is like the real deal, God made...dentures is a tough choice to deal with it. My sister had all hers pull, dentures because of her diabetes...she wishes she hadn't.

    Awwww, sorry for your discomfort Kathy!!! Drink LOTS of water too!!!! That helps to fight decay as well!!!! I have NEVER had any type soda in my life either, the dentist LOVES me for that one cuz i passed it down to my kids too!!! That causes decay in ANYONE, lupus or not!

    HI OLUWA!!!!!! Thats funny that your a day behind me for your cleaning! LOL Yeah, i just got back a bit ago and my teeth feel SOOOOO good!!!! My dentist said my teeth look great as usual! He says to just keep on doing what im doing because it makes for a great set of teeth! He doesnt have any concerns about lupus damaging my mouth due to my 2 cleanings a yr along with brushing with EXACTLY what you do!! No soda and i carry a water around with me EVERYWHERE EVERY DAY is a good path to be on!!!!! Try it Kathy, it DOES help!!!!!
