A lot of things can contribute to that problem. I have been on oxycodone for several years and other pain meds as well. My teeth are solid!!! As a matter of fact... I just had my most recent dental checkup and there is nothing wrong with my teeth. As a matter of fact, I have had multiple dental exams over the years while on pain meds and have had NO dental issues.
Things that can promote tooth decay are poor diet along with hypothyroidism. You may need to be more vigilant about your dental health but there is no reason to worry about dental issues - unless you are already dealing with issues.
