Cold Sores, Grooves on Your Teeth or Gum Recession? Gluten Intolerance Can Manifest in the Mouth
Our next meeting of the Gluten Intolerance Group of Marin will take place on Monday, April 16th at 7:00.
Many people, including dentists, are surprised to learn that gluten intolerance can manifest with symptoms in the mouth such as:
- Enamel defects, including pitting, yellowing, calcification, grooves
- Ulcers or cold sores
- Pointy or crooked teeth
- Gum recession
Come learn more about how problems in the teeth and mouths of children and adults can be indications of gluten intolerance. Our speaker will be Micheal Lipelt, DDS. In addition to a degree in dentistry from UCLA, Dr. Lipelt is trained as a naturopath and dental acupuncturist. Dr. Lipelt is the founder of Stillpoint Family Health Service in Sebastopol. Dr. Lipelt will discuss how gluten intolerance can affect the mouth and teeth, and explore common dental procedures, their impact on gut and overall health, and lab tests which use the oral cavity as a specimen source, one of which is testing for gliadin antibodies.
Also joining us will be Heather Hardcastle owner of Flour Craft Bakery. Heather has been gluten free herself since 2000. Her products are sold at gourmet markets throughout the bay area including Whole Foods and the Marin Farmer’s Market.
Please let your gluten free friends and family know about this fun event. The meeting is free; however, we appreciate a donation of $5 or more to cover the costs of renting the meeting room, printing the handouts, etc.
Whether you have celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or are learning more about gluten free living for yourself, family or friends, we welcome you to the GIG of Marin. New members, friends, and loved ones are always welcome.
