One thing many people are not aware of is the effect medications can have on their smile. Did you know medications can oftentimes affect your oral health and even discolor your teeth? Here at Pro Solutions Dental Group in Prescott, Arizona, our professional team is happy to talk to you about the connection between medications and your smile.
Dry mouth is both a common side effect of many medications and a serious threat to your oral health. Did you know saliva helps keep food from gathering around your teeth and gum line, which produces plaque and tartar? This is why when dry mouth occurs, you are more vulnerable to plaque and tooth decay.
Despite the importance of cancer treatments, did you know they can also affect your oral health? If you are undergoing cancer treatment, be sure to talk to your dentist and tell them about the medications you are taking. Your dentist, Dr. Jason Campbell, cares for your overall health. So, make sure you talk to your dentist to help your smile stay strong, healthy, and beautiful.
