Does Your Dentist Know What’s in Your Medicine Cabinet?

If you use over-the-counter or prescription medications, it is important to let your dentist know.  You should also mention any side-effects you have experienced, as they may negatively affect your oral health.  Dry mouth, gingival enlargement, and tooth decay are all common side effects of several medications.  Luckily, early dentist detection can help reduce or alleviate many of these problems.
