I Am now noticing that my teeth are getting loose also. I went to my dentist and he verified that and said I need to wear a mouth guard because gritting or grinding the teeth at night can cause that. I believe it is from the RA meds I am taking, Orencia and Methotrexate. I told my RA doctor about it and he didn't seem to know anything about that happening but I believe it is from the meds. I have dental iinsurance
but it covers very little. I never checked into health insurance but I really don't think it will cover dental work. I wonder if anybody else out there is having loose teeth as a result of RA and the medication we take for it.View Thread
I have been on those medications for RA and also have hair loss. I began taking 10,000 mcg of Biotin and using Biotin shampoo and conditioner and it has helped tremendously. My hair is nice and full again, not like it used to be but much, much better. You can get all of these products from Puritan's Pride on the Internet and they send it to you. They have great deals and it is worth looking into. Good Luck!View Thread
