(Abst.) Teeth loss after teriflunomide treatment...
« on: July 10, 2018, 11:35:30 am »
Only a few cases are reported here but in general anyone on Aubagio--or anyone with MS, for that matter--is probably well advised to maintain good oral hygiene and not to skip or postpone dental work. From PubMed, July 10, 2018--"Teeth loss after teriflunomide treatment: Casual or causal? A short case series":

I'm in an Aubagio forum on Facebook and there are several people there reporting tooth loss. I have to wonder if it's more related to diet or Aubagio? My mouth is full of fillings from my youth but I haven't had any teeth pulled after being on it for over three years.

"Poor hygiene is common in MS patients," they say. That is probably true. I know I have trouble grasping a toothbrush and holding it right--and seeing what I'm doing.


Hope you can hang onto your teeth.
