I just wanted to tell you about something I learned this morning during my dental cleaning. I had been telling the hygienist that I haven’t been able to wear my night guard (that I got about the same time as I got pregnant) because I’ve been sick the whole time. So when it was time to polish my teeth, instead of using that icky gritty polishing paste (which sometimes may have gluten, but they’ve checked on theirs), she got a paste-free polishing cup, that has the abrasiveness built right in. (She didn’t want me gagging on her, lol.)
If your dentist can’t find out about gluten status of the polishing paste, or you just think it’s icky, check and see if they have a paste-free polishing cup.
