Suboxone users say that long term use of Suboxone causes dental decay. Suboxone is a sublingual medication (under tongue). The injuries reported include dental decay, loss of teeth, cavities (dental caries), and tooth destruction. The damage is usually catastrophic for most patients who need full mouth restoration or dentures.
One user experienced significant dental decay and required $12,000 in restorative work. The repair will include tooth replacement and extraction. Prior to using Suboxone, she had good dental health.
