Antibiotics or not eating turning her teeth brown?

Recommended Posts

My child is taking rifampin, minocycline, valtrex and amphtetercin. Which one could be turning teeth brown? We are starting to wean off of these medications and I want to start with the one that I think is causing the discoloration. I suspect the rifampkin but was wondering if you had any experience with this. Her teeth are the only thing that she likes on her body. :0(

Minocycline can discolor teeth (due to changes in the saliva). It is a surface stain the the dentist can polish off fairly easily. When kiddo was on minocycline, our dentist gave some extra containers of that flouride/pumice tooth polish to use once a month at home. Not all dentists will do this, but you can ask.
