Will Methadone ruin my teeth

Description:

One of the side effects of Methadone is dry mouth. This can cause a buildup of plaque on your teeth, which can cause gum disease or tooth decay. You can avoid this by brushing your teeth, flossing, using mouthwash, and drinking lots of water. Chew sugar-free gum after meals to help produce saliva. Go for gums like Dentyne or Trident that have xylitol in them.
