Went to the dentist this morning, and found out I am heading towards gum disease. She asked if I smoke which I don’t, and said that I cleaned my teeth very well. I asked if it could be related to arthritis and the dentist was quick to say no. However, I have done a quick google and it seems that there is some kind of link. Just interested to know if anyone else has had any problems with their gums.? Or seen any research about this?
Yes I've had loads of problems since being on ra meds have always kept my apps with my dentist but things have really gone worse since diagnosis so let's see if anyone else has had problems ????
Thanks. I am not taking any medication currently so interesting to know if caused by meds or the disease.
Interesting what your dentist says as mine said the opposite and his mum has RA
