A $150,000 grant from Delta Dental will also move forward research into how Suboxone may be causing oral damage during the recovery process.
Rehab Your Grin
“We absolutely appreciate and recognize the importance of having Suboxone and other medication-assisted treatments to help somebody transition, but we want to raise awareness to patients and providers about what we are seeing in their mouths,” said Dr. Katera Hopkins, dental site leader for University of Vermont Medical Center.
Thanks to modern dentistry, though, more people in recovery are getting another chance at healthy teeth and a brighter grin. Even if a complete smile makeover is financially out-of-reach right now, it’s not too soon to start getting the basic dental care you need.
