    Lee_amy, I have never had that done b4, so I am not sure what it entails, or if its good or bad. My gums bleed easily also! I just wish we were all better! Lupus sucks! Hugs kathy hope whatever you decide to do it works!

    I find that fruit and vegies help considerably well in keeping the mouth from getting dry, for me it works better than just water. Tastes good to.

    I have very bad teeth. From what I've learned its from the SS. My teeth just break off at the gums so now its hard to eat anything. Could be the reason for my loss of weight. Everything has to be mush with no flavor. Go to a shrimp boil and can't chew a single shrimp. What a bummer.

    I also have dry mouth, bad breath and dry eyes.

    Want to know whats really sad?

    If I go to jail I can get a full set of plastic choppers. I go to the VA and can't get any dental work at all.
