How Does Suboxone Use Lead to Dental Health Issues?

The connection between Suboxone usage and dental injury stems from how the medication is administered and its physiological effects. Suboxone is typically taken sublingually, meaning it is placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve. This exposes the teeth and oral tissues to the active compounds, which can disrupt the oral pH balance and create an environment conducive to dental decay.

Additionally, Suboxone can reduce saliva production, a condition known as dry mouth or xerostomia. Saliva is crucial for neutralizing acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and for remineralizing tooth enamel. A reduction in saliva not only leads to an increased risk of tooth decay but also to other oral health problems, such as gum disease, tooth loss, and infection. For individuals on long-term Suboxone therapy, these factors may contribute substantially to the deterioration of dental health.

Forms of Evidence Crucial to Your Suboxone Dental Health Case

In pursuing justice for dental damage caused by Suboxone, presenting compelling evidence is paramount.

The following forms of evidence are particularly important in building a robust case:

  • Medical records: Documentation of your dental visits, including diagnoses, treatment plans, and prognoses related to your dental health issues.
  • Prescription history: A complete record of your Suboxone prescription, including dosages, duration of use, and instructions provided by the healthcare provider.
  • Expert testimony: Statements from dental health professionals or pharmacologists who can discuss the effects of Suboxone on oral health and establish causation.
  • Scientific studies: Relevant research literature that outlines the potential risks of Suboxone usage in relation to dental health.
  • Personal testimony: A detailed account of your personal experience, including any changes in dental health after starting Suboxone treatment and the impact it has had on your life.
  • Photographic evidence: Before and after photographs detailing the progression of dental issues since initiating Suboxone use.
  • Financial records: Receipts and invoices for dental treatments, illustrating the economic toll of addressing the dental conditions linked to Suboxone.
  • Correspondence with healthcare providers: Any communication between you and your healthcare providers that may allude to the oral side effects associated with Suboxone.

Gathering and organizing these pieces of evidence can significantly support the claim that Suboxone has had a detrimental effect on your dental health.

Potential Compensation in a Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuit

We recognize the profound impact dental injuries can have on our clients' lives. In a Suboxone tooth decay lawsuit, victims may seek various forms of compensation, reflecting the breadth of harm suffered. 

Compensation in these cases may include, but is not limited to:

  • Medical expenses: Coverage for past, present, and future dental and medical treatments required due to the sustained injury. This encompasses all forms of necessary care, from routine dental work to address decay to more extensive procedures like implants or reconstructive surgeries.
  • Pain and suffering: Compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress experienced because of dental damage, which acknowledges the non-economic toll these injuries take on a person's well-being.
  • Lost wages: If dental problems result in an inability to work, either temporarily or permanently, compensation can include the lost income and benefits during that period of recovery or adjustment.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: In cases where dental injuries affect one's capacity to enjoy daily activities or hinder social interactions, victims may be compensated for this loss.
  • Punitive damages: Although less common, punitive damages may be awarded in cases where the defendant's conduct is found to be especially harmful or egregious, meant to serve as a punishment and deterrent for similar future behavior.

The exact nature and extent of compensation will depend on the specifics of each case, the severity of the harm suffered, and the degree to which Suboxone usage is linked to the dental issues in question. At Matthews & Associates, we fight for total compensation on behalf of our clients, taking your case to trial if necessary.

What Is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a widely prescribed medication that combines buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, with naloxone, an opioid antagonist. This unique combination provides a comprehensive approach to the treatment of opioid addiction. By partially activating opioid receptors in the brain, Suboxone helps to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings, enabling individuals to focus on their recovery journey. With its proven efficacy and safety profile, Suboxone has become an integral part of many comprehensive recovery programs, offering hope and support to those seeking a path toward a healthier and drug-free life.
