Tooth Calcification and Vitamin D
I have needed 2 root canals in the past year. My dentist was unable to do them because of calcification. He was unable to get into the root.
My teeth had to be removed as they cracked or broke off completely!
My vit D level a year ago was 16 ng/ml so my doctor put me on 50,000 IU of vit D.
After all this time level has come up but not high enough. Still taking vit D every 2 weeks.
The new doctor will not test for vit d yet so I don't know what my levels are now. Once my prescription runs out can I take over the counter vit D ? And should I be taking calcium also ?
I have high blood pressure, osteopenia, chronic sinus problems, body pain, & have gained a lot of weight.
Is the tooth calcification caused by lack of vit D? I had a root canal years ago w/o problem and I am 61 years old, on a fixed income & am so embarrassed by my teeth.
And I just feel bad most of the time. Sorry for the confusion here - just writing as things come to mind.
