Abstract

In many parts of the world, consuming alcohol is a common feature of social meetings. However, the drinking alcohol is associated with a risk of adverse health and social effects related to its intoxicating, toxic and dependence-producing properties. In addition to the chronic diseases that may develop in those who drink large quantity of alcohol over a number of years, alcohol use also results in development of various dental diseases. Alcohol may adversely affect salivary glands which in turn may lead to tooth decay. Alcohol can cause irritation and inflammation of oral soft tissues including gingiva, tongue, etc. Non-carious destructions of teeth like dental erosion are also related to regular alcohol drinking. Hence, a review has been attempted regarding effect of alcohol on oral health.
