Medications and oral health

Some medicines can affect oral health due to high levels of sugar. If you are on long-term medication, you may be at greater risk of developing tooth decay due to using sweetened medications.

  • The sugar contained in liquid medications, cough drops, vitamins, antacid tablets and anti-fungal agents can lead to tooth decay.
  • Inhalers (particularly those containing steroids) can cause erosion of the tooth enamel.
