Meth mouth is the term used to describe an individual’s mouth who has been using the drug known as methamphetamine repeatedly for several months to years.  Methamphetamine mouth is common among meth addicts and is believed to be one of the most commonly known signs that someone is dealing with a severe meth addiction.  This problem begins in an individual because he or she no longer concerns themselves with their dental hygiene, and with the constant abuse that they are putting their physical being through while under the influence of meth. Their teeth slowly but surely become brittle and rot away.

Meth Mouth Reasons and Risks

Several reasons why a meth addict begins to develop meth mouth include, but are not limited to:

  • Constant tooth grinding
  • Failure to consult a professional dentist whenever they are suffering from a cavity or unhealthy gums
  • Lack of dental hygiene: no longer regularly brushing their teeth and no longer flossing regularly
  • Constant use of meth (meth includes toxins that cause tooth decay and gum disease)

This tragic side effect of meth use is just another large reason why an individual using this drug should stop immediately.  Meth mouth causes a person to lose confidence in themselves, have trouble obtaining a professional job (even after they are sober), and is very costly whenever the individual chooses to have their teeth professionally fixed back to at least a suitable standard.

This Can Lead to Other Health Problems

The costs that come after an individual begins to suffer from meth mouth are not the only issues.  This condition can also cause problems with your internal health.

The rotting substances that are present in the mouth will go into the other organs in the body and can cause problems such as:

  • Heart problems
  • Stomach ulcers
  • And mouth ulcers
