Can hyperthyroidism cause dental cavities?

Since I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, I have started having lots of cavities. I have never had them before. I brush and floss 2 times a day and don't eat alot of sweets. What can be causing this? Is it the hyperthyroidism?

Can hyperthyroidism cause dental cavities?
As far as I know hyperthyroid does not cause any dental complications. It causes lots of other complications but to my knowledge it doesn't cause dental complications. You are probably just lacking from a proper amount of calcium in your diet. The medications you are taking for your hyperthyroidism could cause a calcium deficiency. Just try adding more calcium and see if that helps.
