Meth Mouth

This is a term to describe the effects of using the illegal drug methamphetamine. Ninety-eight percent of people who try meth will become addicted. Since methamphetamine accelerates the nervous system and dries the mouth, the drug abuser uses sugary drinks. The combination of dry mouth, bacterial causing cavities and poor oral hygiene leads to rapid destruction of the teeth. General health deteriorates as well.
