Hi all,

I'm having trouble with my mouth feeling kinda raw. There are rough patches on the inside of my mouth in front of my lower teeth. Also, my teeth feel dry. It's weird; like there's no coating on them. They feel rough to my tongue. Anyone have this, and have suggestions on how to help relieve it? Do you think it's Lyme-related?

Thanks!

Hi healing,

There are so many things that can cause that to happen. Sometimes using too much mouthwash can cause that or maybe eating acidic foods. Maybe you can explain a little more so we all have an idea what's going on.

I have been experiencing a similar problem this past month. My wife asked me if I had peanut butter stuck in my front teeth. It's some sort of ugly brown tarter build-up around the base of my bottom front teeth. I have been brushing and flossing regulary and now have to clean each tooth individually with a Q-tip and tooth paste once a week. Can antibiotics cause this? I'm currently taking Ceftin 1000MG/Day.

I'll be seeing the dentist soon for a thorough cleaning.   smilewinkgrin

I'm not a doctor but it sounds to me like a yeast/thrush problem which can be caused from taking antibiotics. 
 
Google oral thrush and there are some interesting articles.  Here are some links:

I have what I believe to be dental lyme. This was constant before my 2 mo of abx and is returning, altho not yet constant, but feels the same. My entire mouth is sore, aches and throbs. Someone used the word 'raw' -- and yeah, that's part of what it feels like.
 
Mouthwash burns the heck out of my gums and entire mouth. Had a tooth fall out for no apparant reason. And I do also have a problem w/ ugly brown tartar at the bottom of my front bottom teeth. I am a smoker and frappacinno drinker, so I'm sure that's the cause. The difference is that I have always used a tooth whitener and my teeth have been very white. And it used to whiten those lower front teetch, but no longer does.

Betterhealth, if you'll purchase a cheap little tooth cleaner -- the metal one that curves and has a point -- it is almost exactly what the hygenist uses. Don't be too harsh w/ it, but esp if you do a little bit at a time, you can scrape this buildup/stain away. Not much fun, but it works.

Thanks for the advise +Lyme. The brown stain thing is driving me crazy. I did find a few articles about antibiotics staining teeth. This has only become a problem since I started the Ceftin. Oh... the fun of being on antibiotics long term.

Yeah, staining of teeth is common and of course smoking and drinking coffee doesn't help but I don't think that's the bottom line cause.  
 
Mouth ulcers, sores, etc. can be caused antibiotics, just happens to be a side effect.  I think taking lots of probiotics would help as well as kefir, yogurt, changing one's diet to a high protein diet and avoiding bad carbs (they turn into sugar, not good for teeth or lyme).  Establishing good flora in one's body is important.
 
I read that taking lots of Vitamin C may help as well as avoiding acidic foods:
 
 
Also found this:
 

2. Tetracyclines (bacteriostatic)
Tetracycline, minocycline and doxycycline

a. Mode of action
The tetracyclines reversibly bind to the 30S ribosome and inhibit binding of aminoacyl-t-RNA to the acceptor site on the 70S ribosome.

b. Spectrum of activity -
These are broad spectrum antibiotics and are useful against intracellular bacteria

c. Resistance
Resistance to these antibiotics is common

d. Adverse effects
Destruction of normal intestinal flora often occurs, resulting in increased secondary infections. There can also be staining and impairment of the structure of bone and teeth

 
 
Hope this helps,
Denise
