Opiates cause your mouth to stay dry, sometimes your eyes too. But yes, more cavities, dry tongue, cracked tongue, tooth pain. Try BIOTENE products, tooothpaste, mouthwash, gum, etc. You can ask your dentist for other products. You can also buy saliva substitute at the pharmacy. No prescription needed. Your teeth can also break if on these for a long time. I know from experience. My dentist never believed me until I showed him the research on opiates and tooth decay. good luck
