Our 2yo dd has been on Miralax off and on for about 5-6mos now and has recently been diagnosed with a  lot of advancing tooth decay. i can't remember if i noticed the first issues w/her teeth before or after starting the miralax, though they were both recent - within the past 6mo.

 

Has anybody else seen a possible link between miralax and cavities/decay?

The link for us would have been constipation/food allergies. My dd's food intolerances led to intestinal inflammation and malabsorption which is why she had multiple enamel defects, some of which had decay. Once we identified and removed her food intolerances, her teeth remineralized.
