Hi. Anyone Experience Dental Issues Related To Their HIV Meds?
A myHIVteam Member asked a question 💭

Anyone experience dental issues, such as cavities, loss of, or soft enamel and/or gum erosion as an adverse effect of their HIV meds, Atripla, specifically? I've been taking Atripla since it became available, 10+ yrs ago, and I'm having these dental issues, despite taking care of my teeth. My dentist thinks it's from the meds causing dry mouth, so that bacteria thrives in the mouth, softening enamel at the gumline, creating a good environment for cavities to form.

A myHIVteam Member

My cousin has been HIV positive for several years and the dentist had to pull all of his teeth and he has dentures as a result of meds. I’m not exactly sure what he takes. Blessings!
