So, many years ago, I met an RN, who was a DS patient, who had severe post-DS dental problems. She confessed to many of us that it was because she had (foolishly) neglected to take her calcium.

I just had Dentist #2 tell me that it isn’t calcium deficiency (malabsorption) at the root of the problem. It’s weight loss itself. Just like even your feet “get smaller,” your “fatty gums” get less fatty and, for example, a dental crown that met the root when you got the crown, is no longer as close to the gum. So cavities form near the gum line because that area is exposed.

Whaddaya think?
