Re: If she has osteoporosis, she is presumably not young… The
only thing that occurs to me is …perhaps she has copper in her
bones, i.e., teeth, and that is what turned black.
Funny you should mention this…it is exactly the thought I had
last night, as I was thinking about the postings by folks who say it
couldn’t have happened. It makes sense that her teeth, being very
absorbent, have bits of metal in the pores made by osteoporosis, and
it is the tiny metal bits that oxidized, making her teeth look
darkened. The good news is that tooth brushing has lightened
them----she has not yet responded to those specific questions
asked—I will pass on her comments when she returns from vacation.
So, it is likely not a problem for most folks, but we figured that
she’s not the only one with osteoporosis, and we wanted to warn people
with similar health issues.
