I have just been for my 6 monthly check up. My usual dentist is on long term sick after a knee injury so they put me in with another dentist. I wasn't happy at first as my usual one knows about scleroderma and its effects. I was quite surprised with this one, I told her that I have recently been diagnosed with Sjorgens Syndrome and she knew at once what I meant. After checking my teeth she said that I was prone to cavities because of the lack of saliva and she prescribed a high flouride toothpaste. I now have two dentists at the practice that I will be most happy to see.
