Certain drugs ‘could cause a need for emergency dentistry’

People who need to take medication should take action to avoid emergency dentistry.Britons have been warned that taking certain drugs regularly could result in a need for emergency dentistry further down the line.

Karen Coates from the British Dental Health Foundation told the Daily Mail that anti-inflammatory eye drops and certain other medications can cause decay by reducing the amount of saliva in the mouth.

There is then nothing to protect against decay and acid erosion.

Ms Coates explained that anti-depressants, ibuprofen and blood pressure medications can all halt saliva production, but added that an odd tablet here and there should not cause harm.

If you do need medicine regularly, the expert recommended taking action to help teeth.

"There are gums, lozenges and gels available over the counter specifically for dry mouth that help encourage the production of saliva," she said.

Regular sips of water are also recommended by dental experts in preventing emergency dentistry, as it can wash away acids from foods.
