Now that a sweet physician in India has been kind enough to tell me thatDilantin caused the root decay in my teeth, suddenly, I googled Vimpat+tooth decay;guess what? Same deal. Are there ANY anti-seizure drugs that are NOT in any way coupled with tooth or gum loss? Epilepsy has been my master for 12 years, but was only diagnosed one year ago. In the last 6 month, I developed tooth dacay, (black) at the roots of each tooth. No amount of electric toothbrush brushing can help them now. My upper teeth have been caps since I was 30--now I worry if the teeth UNDER the expensive caps/crowns will also rot. I want a lawyer! My neuro's office staff say they have never heared of the connection between Dilantin and tooth decay. But I was able to Google it?
