PROLONGED ASPIRIN CAN DAMAGE TEETH

People who chew aspirin over a prolonged period could severely damage
their teeth, says a study by the University of Maryland Dental
School, Baltimore, MD, USA. "Aspirin can cause severe damage to both
the hard and soft tissues of the mouth," the researchers said.
"Dentists should counsel and educate patients and other health care
practitioners about the dangers to both hard and soft oral tissues
from chewing aspirin." The study, in the "Journal of the American
Dental Association," detailed two cases of people who had damaged
tooth enamel from chewing several aspirin tablets daily.
