Methotrexate and tooth pain/sensitivity
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?
Methotrexate will not interfere with implants, crowns or fillings. It is expected to cause some mouth sores.
