I broke a healthy tooth into 3 pieces just biting on soft food. It felt awful. After having it pulled I spoke to my GI about
it. He reminded me that he put me on extra calcium for a reason. The disease kinda uses up you calcium reserve and acan make teeth and/or bones very brittle. I now take calcium with Vit. D. I was checked to make sure I had adequate vit. D in my system to metabolize the calcium.
I'm sure the prednisone just makes the situation worse.
