    I have to say i have never heard that one. Strongly suggest you contact your doc. How were your teeth pre surg? Hope you get an answer to your problem.

    Man, I'm afraid that you're a bit late. Anyways, I heard that it isn't an average side effect. As far as I know, it can be related to the lack of vitamin C or other essential nutrients. So, if you deal with this problem, you better review your diet and consult your dentist. I didn't experience this thing, even if I got dental implants one year before my gastric sleeve surgery. Still, I had a detailed general checkup ahead of it and even followed a course of antibiotics. It wasn't the most pleasant experience, but the result was certainly worth it.
