Methamphetamine and Your Teeth : A Bad Combination

 

Need a reason NOT to do Meth? If that picture isn’t enough motivation to never start – here are 4 more reasons why you should never even try methamphetamine:

  • Meth can contain battery acid, cold medicine, drain cleaner, antifreeze, acetone or lye. (Do you really want to ingest these chemicals?)
  • Acidic content causes massive dry mouth, leading to gum disease and extensive tooth decay.
  • Teeth are heavily damaged by grinding and clenching.
  • Teeth become stained, blackened and rotting- and the person who is using meth is not especially concerned about brushing for days on end. Most teeth fall out within a year of starting to abuse methamphetamine.
