Hi everyone. I was recently told I had pernicious anemia after suffering from symptoms for years. Over the past maybe 3-4 years my dental health has gone down drastically. Almost every tooth has a cavity and many need extensive work or extractions. I'm only 31 and considering implants or dentures of the entire mouth, that is how bad it is. It is very hard to eat without pain. I don't understand how this could have happened as I have always and still do take very good care of my teeth. I also eat a healthy diet and do not eat junk food sodas etc.
I also have issues with iron and vitamin d defiencies but those have been treated and in normal ranges for a long time now. I also supplement b12 as well. I still even take iron and vitamin d just to maintain levels so I don't get defiencies.
I was wondering if anyone else has this issue or knows of any link with PA and dental issues?
