I have developed an abscess right behind my two front bottom teeth where the suboxone sits when i take it. I have researched a little and it seems a strange place to get a gum abscess. Has anyone else experienced this or is it coincidence. I also have developed five new cavities this year from suboxone. I don't like the fact that the sub has to sit in your mouth for so long, it seems like it could damage the tissue in your mouth?

Somewhere else on the forum (I think it was here anyway) someone asked about Suboxone being bad for teeth and Dr. J (again I think) said there's nothing in the pills that would be bad for teeth or gums. The thing about Sub though is that it really dries out your mouth, which creates a breeding ground for bacteria. I also got my first cavity ever (I'm 36) while I was on Suboxone, and a good friend had a bad tooth abcess that required surgery while she was on it. Her dentist confirmed that the dry mouth thing is hell on the teeth and gums.

There are toothpastes you can get with enzymes in them that help combat this problem. I tried one from Tom's of Maine that I really liked and another one that I can't remember the name of that was pretty good but not as good as Tom's.

Drinking a lot of water and doing salt-water rinses can be helpful too.
