Methotrexate and tooth pain/sensitivity

11/09/2007

Question:

Does methotrexate interfere with any implants/crowns/fillings? I have been taking for about 3 months and my teeth today are very sensitive and hurting. I do not have any cavities and go to the dentist every 6 months?

Answer:

Methotrexate will not interfere with implants, crowns or fillings. It is expected to cause some mouth sores.
