Not many people are aware that common medications including vitamins, mineral and herbal supplements can impact their dental health. Certain prescriptions for blood pressure, for instance, can cause complications during some dentistry work. Talk to an experienced Waterloo dentist about prescribed and over-the-counter medications which may affect your teeth or the outcome of dental treatments. Taking precautions enhances your chances of positive results.
