Dental Health and Fibro

Posted on October 12, 2018

Fibromyalgia can make routine dental work more uncomfortable. Even simple dental procedures may result in pain or anxiety. Many dentists aren't educated about chronic pain. Taking care of your teeth and gums when you have fibro requires special forethought and care.

On MyFibroTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with fibromyalgia, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Dental health is one of the top topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about dental health:

Do others battle dental problems from their medication?

I would like to know if anyone had any kind of procedures done and has it affected your entire body?

Has anyone besides myself have experienced tooth loss or teeth breaking?

Does anyone get cramped up in the dental chair?

Here are some conversations about dental health:

"Toothless. Fibro has many facets. My worst has always been my teeth. From childhood, I have struggled with them being healthy..."

"Two and a half hours of dental work today left me feeling horrible. My mouth hurts from the dental work and my body hurts from being in one position for so long."

A member shares tips for fighting dry mouth associated with Sjögren’s syndrome.

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to MyFibroTeam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
