Suboxone is a prescription drug that is used to aid in the treatment of opioid use disorder. It is available as a film that can be placed sublingually (under the tongue) or buccally (between the cheek and the gums). The film contains a combination of naloxone, also known as Narcan, and buprenorphine, which are absorbed through the mouth. The mixture is designed to be acidic in order to maximize the absorption of buprenorphine and minimize the absorption of naloxone.

How does Suboxone treat opioid addiction?
The combination of buprenorphine and naloxone in Suboxone helps treat opioid addiction by:  

  • Reducing withdrawal symptoms.  
  • Reducing the desire to use opioids.  
  • Blocking the effects of other opioids.  
  • Preventing the cycle of highs and lows of opioid misuse.  

Suboxone and similar medications remain important components of MAT and opioid dependency treatment in general. As with any medication, the manufacturers have a responsibility to their consumers to warn them of any potential risks.  

Acidity of buprenorphine medications
Patients using Suboxone are directed to place the film in their mouth three times a day. The film takes about nine minutes to dissolve, and the patients are instructed to hold the film and saliva in their mouth for the duration to maximize absorption. 

Tooth decay caused by Suboxone
Since its introduction, Suboxone use has been linked to permanent tooth decay. Individuals using the medication have reported dental problems including cavities, tooth loss, dental decay, tooth fracture, and oral infections.   In many cases, those who suffered tooth decay as a result of Suboxone use needed substantial, expensive dental work. This kind of procedure is generally not covered by Medicaid, saddling those who need treatment with expensive bills.   
While opioid use can be associated with tooth damage, dental problems as a result of Suboxone use have been reported even in patients with no history of dental issues. Despite documentation of these issues over decades, no warning was included on Suboxone’s label until the FDA mandated it in 2022.
