Re: Dental probs related to head meds
I would agree that the meds may be the cause. I know certain heart and BP meds can cause gum bleeding, bone loss and evenutal tooth loss. I am just guessing, but its possible these meds alter your bodies ability to absorb certain nutrients or fight off certain bacteria or reduce your bodies production of bacteria fighting enzymes (so although you are salivating more its not as affective in clearing the bacteria).
Drugs can do so much more than what their main goal is intended for - its usually in very fine print that requires a magnifying glass to read and is labled as "Very unlikely or less than 1% of people tested developed ... blah,blah,blah". If you are like me you fall into the 1% category.
