Tooth decay

I've been on Humira for over a year now and had a problem with tooth decay. As anyone else had a problem with their teeth due to Humira?
I have problems with my teeth. But it wasn't from
Humira.. My dentist said it was poor nutrion,
Vitamin diffency, stomach acid ect.
He gave me a special mouthwash that's suppose
To help prevent decay and strengthen my teeth as well.


I like mere have my enamel chipping off but due to the illness.

Mere which mouthwash?

I am using fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash to build enamel.
This time it's a Colgate I believe. It's called
Prevent.. I think you can get it at most
Dentist office. He also does build ups
On my back teeth to help with the cracking
And chipping. I already have 5 or so crowns.. Ugh
I have little parts of my teeth breaking off. I have been on Humira for about 8 months and before that it was methotrexate. I couldn't tolerate the methotrexate very well at all. I also have much more sensitivity in my teeth to sweets and temperature. I have been using Sensodyne toothpaste and I can say it helps with temperature but not sweetness. I can't say for sure that it is because of the humira, but there is a correlation. Best of luck with your teeth issues.
