why do alot of heroin addicts have really bad teeth (rotting %26amp; falling out etc) ?
is it the heroin itself, the methadone that they periodically use or just their lifestyle (not brushing or flossing etc) that causes this ?
Heroin addiction %26amp; bad teeth- why ?
Heroin dries out the saliva that is present to naturally combat bacteria. Meth and cocaine does the same.
Plus, when stoned all the time, people just don't care about much, other than the drug. Hygiene, sleep and food become things of he past.
Sad way to spend your life. But we all make choices and they have chosen badly.
Reply:Meth, cocaine, and heroin deplete your body of nutrients that are vital to the growth of skin, hair, and nails as well as teeth and tooth enamel. Also, heroin, meth, and cocaine all cause a decrease in appetite. Users don't eat as often as they should or sometimes not at all. That also causes tooth and hair loss, just like anorexia and bulimia. Really harcore users are so addicted that they'd rather spend money on the drugs than food.
Reply:Basically bad oral hyigene. The druggies are so involved in getting their next fix, they don't take care themselves. They also don't eat right and don't get the proper vitamins and minerals.
