Can anyone tell me if receding gums can be a result of or contected to MS?
My gums were slightly receding before I got MS but have receded a lot more since. I seem to have halted the progression now with extra gentle teeth cleaning and mouth wash.
I am going to the dentist tomorrow - first time for about 10 years (I hate going to the dentist) as I have toothache and I am wondering whether to tell the dentist I have MS and I’d like to know if the MS has affected my gums. At one of my first appointments with a neuro he asked me to “do this” and he grimaced showing me his teeth and gums so I did what he asked, but he never explained why he asked me to do that and I did not think to ask at the time.
All the best J.
P.S. It amused me that my dental appointment is at 2.30!
