Your teeth can be affected by many medications, especially narcotics. The problem is caused due to the fact that they tend to sap the minerals from your body, plus they cause dry mouth, which allows more bacteria to sit on your teeth.

From the medications you are taking, all of the narcotics, the Oxycontin, Co-Codamol, Oxynorm and the Fentanyl can cause a loss of calcium, as well as dry mouth.

And the Amitryptiline can also cause dry mouth as a side effect.

Many people on long-term narcotic pain management end up with severe dental issues and a lot have lost all their teeth and required dentures or implants.

Is there anything else I can help with?
