What medications cause/escalate pain and damage to teeth, gums, and gumline? Also what foods or off the counter drugs/medications/vitamins do you think helps keep teeth healthier, stronger, and less suseptible to damage given that one brushes and flosses on a regular basis.

In some rare instances, digitalis may cause unexplainable tooth pain, which can lead to unnecessary treatments such as root canal therapy or extraction.

Vinblastine, which is a chemo drug, can cause inexplicable jaw pain. This can sometimes be interpreted as tooth pain.

I don't know the exact mechanism but do know my attendings have pimped us on it multiple times in staff meetings.
