Vitamin K2 (MK-7) - makes my teeth worse?!

Hi everybody!

Since I had some troubles when taking even small amounts of Vitamin D (2.000 IE) daily, even though I am deficient, I started taking Vitamin K2 in the form of MK-7 around two weeks ago. When taking 100mcg daily I just have some slight side effects from taking Vitamin D3 (light joint pain). I am also taking Vitamin A (6.000 I.E. daily) for a week now since I am deficient and am okay with that.

But now I have a hughe problem concerning my teeth! Normally they??re almost white, my gums are in a good condition and I don??t have any plaque on them. But NOW they??re turning a bit yellow and if I forget to brush them in the evening in the morning my gums are not rose colored but full of white covering. When I brush my teeth the covering disapears, but I??ve noticed that my gums are very sensitive right now. In addition to that the first time in my life I got some plaque at a teeth!!! (it??s really hard and I can hardly remove it)

Has anyone of you guys made an experience like that? Of course I will stop taking MK-7 now, but without it I can??t stand the troubles Vitamin D/A are causing.

I hope anybody of you guys might have a good idea :(



P.S.: I don??t know if it??s important, but I??m hypothyroid....

Oh, I forgot to mention that I was taking Vitamin D from July 2013 up to the beginning of January 2014 and I always had severe joint pain, nausea etc. when taking it. My doctor told me to continue no matter what side-effects I got. Then around the 10th of January I started taking K2 and stopped Vitamin D3...I don´t know if there´d be a disbalance between D3/K2/ Vit A or if I got another problem... :(
