Going Gluten Free? Don’t Forget the Dentist!

Gluten and teethDo you have a gluten allergy? You should know that here at West Willow Family Dental, we are completely gluten free!

Everyone with a gluten allergy or sensitivity knows the feelings associated with the condition: stomach discomfort, joint pain, skin rashes, fatigue, headaches etc. West Willow Family Dental is committed to our patient’s overall health, and realizes that much of what goes into a patient’s mouth at an appointment could adversely affect them.

While people tend to know what kind of food and beverages they are sensitive to, they may not know about other situations that could flare up their gluten sensitivity, such as a visit to the dentist.

As professionals, we need to be considering celiac disease as a possible problem in patients with recurrent ulcers or enamel defects. At West Willow Family Dental, we will ask about your family history and other medical issues that you may be facing, such as gluten allergies. This is just one more way we incorporate total health into our patient’s care.

Our Gluten-free products include:
• Toothpastes
• Toothbrushes
• Mouthwash
• Floss
• Impression material
• Dental Gloves
• Retainers
• Invisalign products
• And more…

If you have concerns about any aspect of your dental treatment, just ask! For those who have problems with gluten sensitivity, you can be assured that everything we use in the office and recommend for at-home use is gluten free.
