In brief: Possibly

There is no general need to consume extra calcium unless you have been specifically diagnosed with hypocalciumia by a physician.
If you are ingesting a large amount of excess calcium it can manifest in stone production both salivary and kidney. Please see you doctor if you are concerned about your bone density and stop taking extra calcium.
