Yes, it certainly could be. Opiate medications cause dry mouth, which allows bacteria that cause decay to remain on your teeth longer than usual, your saliva is typically a big help in washing some of it away. Additionally, they tend to leech minerals from the body, such as vitamin D and calcium, which can cause your teeth to become softer, so they decay easier. The NIH and FDA have several studies and articles available about this.

You may want to speak to your dentist about doing some fluoride treatments and then putting a sealant on them to help prevent damage.

Another good idea would be to keep your mouth more moist, frequent sips of water, or sucking on sugar free candies can help.

Is there anything else I can help with?
