Just when you think allergy season can’t get any worse, it does. You’re stuffy, sneezy, and itchy, and your eyes won’t stop watering. We don’t blame you for reaching for allergy medication. However, we do want you to be aware that your medication may be affecting your oral health.
If you take an antihistamine for your allergy symptoms, make sure to stay extra hydrated, as these medications can cause dry mouth syndrome (which increases risk of oral infections).
Other types of medication can also affect your oral health.
Make sure Dr. Leonard is aware of all medication that you are currently taking, so he can be on the lookout for any oral side effects that may be associated with those medications. To schedule an appointment, call our office at 952-443-3368.
