Does Oxycontin affect dental health? Since starting Oxycontin for Avascular Necrosis of bilateral hips, knee and shoulder, I have lost most of my teeth. The dentist doesn't know if this is because of the drug. He seems to think I have poor oral hygiene, which I don't. Ibrush, floss, use anti-cavity rinse, and products to increase saliva. My mouth is not as dry as it used to be. Is this all related?
Thank you very much for any help you can offer!! Michele
