Everytime i get to see my Dentist clean my teeth.  They always have a problem with my gums bleeding too much.  Even though i floss more than my husband I still get the you must floss more .  On another forum someone suggested garggling peroxyl.  Are we hyper/Graves have indirect deficiency on this? Bone loss of some sort?

    I ask specifically for a particular dental hygienist at my Dentist's office because one time I got a different one and had the same problem as you.  The lady that I work well with, I have no problems like that ever.  So I do think that makes a difference and I told the dental office, she is the only one I will allow to clean my teeth.

    Hi

    Yes, I've had exactly this problem. For me it turned out to be low levels of vitamin c and iron.

    I started eating a small amount of lamb's liver every day, with high vitamin c vegetables (raw or lightly cooked)

    The iron and vit c need eachother to aid proper absorption. This has now solved the problem, plus my tooth enamel is thicker.

      Just a blood test. I was low on B12 too. Again, the liver and a varied diet have sorted this.

      Also, things have improved for me since giving up dairy and cutting right back on seafood. That's quite common from what I've read.

    I am also low on iron and take supplements daily. U can ask your doc to test your ferritin level. I wonder if iron deficiency is a common symptom for hyper patients?
