Can teeth shift after losing weight? Had gastric sleeve and lost 90lb in 2 years and my teeth are shifting. Is this related? Serum calcium normal.

In brief: Tooth movement

teeth move for a number of reasons-unstable bite, periodontal disease(which loosens the attachment of the teeth to the bone), have a thorough dental exam that includes a periodontal charting and occlusal wear analysis to understand this change.
the tooth movement is unrelated to the weight loss. dental maintenance and prevention procedures will help to stabilize your teeth.
