Medicines bite into oral health

from South Burnett Times via DentistryIQ

Do medicines affect oral health? Yes, medications can have oral side effects (drymouth is the most common). Tell your dentist about any medications you're taking, even those without a prescription. Medications that can produce dry mouth include: antihistamines, decongestants, pain killers, diuretics, high blood pressure medications, antidepressants. Other medications may cause abnormal bleeding when brushing or flossing, inflamed or ulcerated tissues, mouth burning, numbness or tingling, movement disorders and taste alteration. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult your dentist or physician. more
