Suboxone, a medication for dealing with opioid addiction, can be a lifesaver. It helps by stopping cravings and making it impossible to get high on other dangerous drugs while you are taking it. But lately, there has been a worrying discovery—a link between Suboxone sublingual strips and serious dental issues such as the risk of severe tooth decay. Keep in mind it is only the oral film version form of Suboxone that causes tooth decay.
If you or someone you care about has had dental issues such as tooth loss or gum injuries while on Suboxone, we might be able to assist with obtaining compensation.

A Recent Increase in Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuits
Lately, there's been a big jump in the number of lawsuits over Suboxone causing tooth decay.
As of November 2023, more than 100 Suboxone lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of Suboxone films, Indivior, with 14 new ones added just this month. With hundreds of thousands of people using Suboxone for the treatment of opioid use and dealing with dental issues, we expect that number to rise.
The increase in these lawsuits is likely because more people are discovering the link between Suboxone and tooth decay. The drug is becoming more popular for opioid addiction treatment, and Suboxone users are starting to notice dental problems during their check-ups. Keep in mind we are nearly a decade into the national opioid epidemic.
The growing body of Suboxone lawsuits allege the drug manufacturer Indivior, Inc., failed to warn users of potential dental hygiene issues before adding a warning label in 2022. As these lawsuits keep piling up, Indivior will likely be held responsible for failing to warn consumers about the dental risks of severe tooth decay and other oral health issues. We believe Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals which later became Indivior (the makers of Suboxone) were well aware of the potential risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and loss of teeth.
Suboxone Lawsuit Updates – February 2024
As Suboxone tooth decay lawsuits continue to evolve, the team at Lawsuit Legal News will provide regular and timely updates to keep you informed. Here are the latest updates on the Suboxone Lawsuit. We will also keep you informed of the dental injuries the plaintiff's steering committee is representing victims for as time goes on.
February 21, 2024 - Questions about the Statute of Limitations in the Suboxone Lawsuit
Many prospective clients have inquired about how the statute of limitations will affect the Suboxone Lawsuit and have received conflicting opinions from lawyers handling these cases. A large number of states have a two-year statute of limitations on product liability lawsuits regarding "failure to warn".
Since the maker of Suboxone, Indivior, was forced to add tooth decay to their warning label in January 2022, the statute of limitations ran out in January 2024 for states with 2-year limits.
However, we are still taking Suboxone lawsuit claims in states that have a statute of limitations of three, four, and five years.
States that are still accepting Suboxone lawsuits include:
- New Hampshire
- New York
- New Mexico
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Carolina
- South Dakota
If you experienced serious dental problems while using Suboxone sublingual films and you reside in one of the above states, call us immediately.
February 17, 2024 - Judge Calabrese Sets Hearing for 3/7 to Appoint Leadership in Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuit
The initial status conference in the Suboxone tooth decay MDL has been set by Judge Calabrese for March 7, 2024, in Cleveland, Ohio. The purpose of this hearing is to determine leadership for both plaintiffs and defendants. After leadership is determined, Judge Calabrese will likely set forth a discovery calendar to streamline and move this lawsuit along.
Attorneys interested in a leadership position are required to attend in person. Further, applications for leadership must be submitted to the Court by March 1, 2024.
Our Suboxone lawyers believe this will be a fast-moving mass tort due to the strength of science establishing a link between sublingual buprenorphine and tooth decay along with a wide array of other dental injuries. We have a large number of clients who have suffered severe tooth decay. In fact, the amount of adverse event reports reported to the FDA resulted in the agency unilaterally changing the warning label for Suboxone sublingual films.
We project that the plaintiffs will get past Daubert (a Daubert hearing is where the Court serves as a gatekeeper and determines the admissibility of experts on both sides along with the methodology behind their scientific findings and conclusions.
While it is unlikely we will see a Suboxone settlement in 2024, this lawsuit could conceivably be resolved within the next two to three years at most. Thus, it will be a much quicker-moving mass tort than the norm.
February 7, 2024 – Suboxone Lawsuit is Beginning to Take Off
In the past week we have begun seeing heavy internet advertising for Suboxone lawsuits; especially on Facebook and Instagram. The Suboxone tooth decay lawsuit will be one of the most popular mass torts in 2024 as more folks become aware of the adverse impact sublingual buprenorphine has on one's dental health.
February 6, 2024 – While MDL Gets Going, a Suboxone Settlement is not in the Near Future
The Suboxone lawsuits share a similar legal theory of liability. Injured plaintiffs allege prescription Suboxone film causes tooth erosion and decay because it has an acidic ingredient that differs from the prior tablet form of this medication.
In addition, plaintiffs claim the maker of Suboxone knew about this potential problem yet failed to warn patients using the drug. After these lawsuits began, Suboxone added a warning about potential dental issues.
Since the plaintiffs will need to provide a solid scientific basis to support these claims, the team at Lawsuit Legal News does not expect any settlement discussions or payments in the coming months while both sides sort out the related medical research. We anticipate Suboxone tooth decay litigation will take a few years to play out.
In the meantime, filing deadlines are approaching or may have expired by now. To learn more about your specific right to join this MDL, reach out to the LLN team today.
February 2, 2024 – Suboxone Lawsuit Now Officially an MDL
Officially, the Federal Suboxone lawsuits have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation (MDL), which brings separate lawsuits from around the nation into one court. This helps organize and streamline discovery processes and motion hearings to ensure consistent court rulings while each case maintains a separate legal claim.
There was no need for oral arguments during the JPML hearing since both sides agreed to the MDL beforehand. Judge Phillip Calabrese will preside over the litigation in the Northern District of Ohio. Thus, all federal Suboxone lawsuits have been consolidated before Judge Calabrese in the Northern District of Ohio.
January 27, 2024 – JPML Committee Meets to Discuss Consolidating Suboxone Lawsuits, Helping Speed Up Cases and Potential Compensation for Clients
The Joint Panel on Multidistrict Litigation met today in Santa Barbara, California, to discuss consolidation of all Suboxone lawsuits filed in Federal Courts throughout the United States, known as an MDL.
We are projecting that all lawsuits concerning physician-prescribed Suboxone film will be consolidated into a single case in the Northern District of Ohio. This consolidation will move things along more quickly and could help clients receive compensation sooner. We expect an order from the JPML within the next week or two at most.
It is worth noting that both Reckitt-Benckiser and Indivior have previously filed responsive motions with the JPML and agree with consolidating the Suboxone lawsuit. Thus, this seems like a predictable outcome.
January 17, 2024 – Suboxone Lawsuit Statute of Limitations
As the Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuit continues, some states are starting to reach their statute of limitations for product liability cases or defective drug cases. Since Indivior added a warning to the Suboxone films in January 2022, exactly 2 years ago, potential plaintiffs in a state with a 2-year statute of limitations will soon (or may already) not be able to file a lawsuit. Read our updated section on the Statute of Limitations for the Suboxone Lawsuit.
January 16, 2024 – Pennsylvania Plaintiff Says Indivior Did Not Warn Her Doctors About Risk of Extensive Tooth Decay
On January 12th, another product liability lawsuit was filed against the manufacturers of the buprenorphine-naloxone medication Suboxone. The plaintiff is Lindsay Haddad, a woman who had used Suboxone to treat her opioid addiction. In her personal injury lawsuit filed with the U.S. District Court Western District of Pennslyvania, she describes the extensive tooth decay she experienced as a result of using the defective drug.
Haddad’s provider prescribed her the sublingual film version of Suboxone in 2013, the same year it was made available. At that time, Suboxone was not labeled with any warnings concerning potential tooth decay.
Haddad argues that Indivior should be liable for her damages based on the flawed design of sublingual Suboxone, but also because the manufacturer failed to warn her or her providers that using Suboxone could cause irreparable damage to her teeth. Her Suboxone tooth decay lawsuit also alleges that the company failed to rigorously test the sublingual film form of the drug and used a defective design.
January 13, 2024 – New Suboxone Cases Keep Coming as More People Learn About the Possible Cause of Their Tooth Decay
While plaintiffs await the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) hearing scheduled for January 25th to determine if their Suboxone lawsuits and claims will be consolidated, more and more people who have been prescribed Suboxone are continuing to find out that their dental problems might be linked to their medication.
This has caused a rise in product liability lawsuits against the manufacturer of the Buprenorphine medication Suboxone.
January 12, 2024 – New Suboxone Lawsuit Sheds Light on Acidity of Sublingual Buprenorphine Naloxone Exposure
A new lawsuit filed by a New York resident this week shows the problems associated with long-term Suboxone use. Suboxone was prescribed to this individual to treat opioid addiction. In turn, the acidity of Suboxone caused significant tooth decay resulting in the extraction of multiple teeth. Unfortunately, neither the plaintiff nor his physician were aware of the significant risks associated with Suboxone use.
The FDA's Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) already shows a disproportionately high rate of dental disorder claims associated with buprenorphine medications. We believe that physicians prescribing Suboxone film would be aware that the cure to opioid use disorder may be worse than the problem itself.
January 2, 2024 – New Suboxone Lawsuit Filed Targeting Pain Pills for Dental Side Effects
Another person has brought a claim against Suboxone—this time a woman in Ohio—who claims that taking Suboxone to treat her opioid addiction caused her serious dental injuries. In the lawsuit filed on her behalf, she claims that the manufacturer of Suboxone was aware of this dangerous side effect but chose not to include any warning about possible tooth decay on the drug's warning label or in the drug's medication pamphlet given to patients. Additionally, the lawsuit claims that the Ohio woman's physician was also not aware of the dangers of Suboxone when it comes to tooth decay and other dental problems.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiff explains that her addiction started when she was prescribed opioid pain medicine by a doctor. And, like so many who have suffered directly or indirectly from America's opioid crisis, she became addicted. As she was seeking help for her substance dependence issue, she was prescribed Suboxone. Now, having conquered her addiction and the tribulations that go along with it, the plaintiff claims she had to undergo extensive dental work to repair the damage caused by Indivior's negligence and is seeking compensation for her present and future medical bills along with pain and suffering.
December 26, 2023 – JPML Sets Hearing to Determine Fate of Suboxone Lawsuit
The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) will be hearing arguments from plaintiffs and defense counsel on creating multidistrict litigation for Suboxone on January 25, 2024, in Santa Barbara, California. We project that all federal lawsuits that comprise the Suboxone class action lawsuit will be consolidated in the Northern District of Ohio. This would be a very favorable jurisdiction for bringing legal actions alleging dental damage caused by Suboxone. The purpose of consolidation is to streamline discovery and pretrial proceedings.
November 30, 2023 – Petition Filed With JPML on Suboxone Films
A petition has been filed with the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) by a group of lawyers acting on behalf of plaintiffs to consolidate all lawsuits that have been filed in Federal Court into multidistrict litigation (MDL). As of today, a majority of Suboxone lawsuits have been filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, which is the odds-on favorite to be selected as the jurisdiction for the forthcoming Suboxone tooth decay lawsuits MDL.
November 20, 2024 - Anticipating a Suboxone Class Action Lawsuit
We anticipate the Suboxone class action lawsuit will inevitably become an MDL (multidistrict litigation) soon. Once enough lawsuits have been filed in Federal Courts throughout the nation, the plaintiffs will petition the JPML (Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation) to consolidate all lawsuits before one Judge in one (Federal Court) jurisdiction.
There is a lot of potential for Suboxone tooth decay lawsuits to move forward. The manufacturer simply rushed the sublingual film version to market in fear of competition from generic tablets. To combat this, they quickly developed a film version, marketed it as "better", and got the word out to doctors asap.
Unfortunately, this decision has seemingly led to a large number of adverse event reports of serious dental issues and dental injuries, so many that it has become alarming.
Our law firm began investigating Suboxone teeth lawsuits back in August of 2023. In fact, we were among the first law firms to investigate claims related to dental injuries from Suboxone sublingual exposure.
November 12, 2023 – Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuits Have Common Issues
We are seeing a growing number of plaintiffs filing lawsuits in Federal Court alleging a wide array of dental injuries caused by the acidic Suboxone sublingual films used to wean individuals off of opiates. The acidic films destroy the protective outer layer of one's tooth enamel. Many of the Suboxone product liability lawsuits list oral infections, degradation of tooth enamel, tooth extractions, diminution of oral health, and other serious dental problems related to the use of this product. However, cavities and tooth loss appear to be the most common complaints with this chronic pain medication.
November 1, 2023 – Suboxone Lawsuit is Taking off
Fourteen new Suboxone lawsuits were filed against Indivior in federal courts over the past ten (10) days. We believe that this mass tort will explode over the coming months. Invidious patent on the tablet form of Suboxone was set to expire, which would allow for generic competition. Thus, the sublingual form was rushed to market, leading to a host of Suboxone side effects and terrible dental outcomes. The crisis and effects of opioids led to this prescription medication exploding in popularity which makes for a potentially large plaintiff base.
October 30, 2023 – Suboxone Manufacturer Facing Exposure
The pharmaceutical giant Indivior—who has been sued for monopoly violations, lying to the government, and so many more—got hit with another legal challenge recently for an illegal kickback scheme and false marketing claims. Indivior says they did nothing wrong and are fighting the potential class action lawsuit in court. However, with so many individuals experiencing dental problems while taking Suboxone, along with the scientific evidence, it's possible they could be found liable for negligence. Further, Indivior will deal with antitrust litigation relating to how their product has been marketed. Thus, Indivior will be fighting a multi-pronged legal battle in the future on multiple fronts.
September 28, 2023 – First Suboxone Lawsuit Alleging Tooth Decay Filed
David Sorensen has filed a Suboxone lawsuit in the Northern District of Ohio, naming Indivior Inc as the defendant. The lawsuit alleges the sublingual film form of Suboxone led to permanent tooth decay, and he incurred significant expenses in treating multiple medical providers for dental care.
The Suboxone lawsuit is the beginning of a litigation storm. Plaintiff lawyers will argue that Indivior was fearful their patent on Suboxone tablets was about to expire. In turn, the defendant manufacturer introduced the sublingual film version, which some will say was rushed to market. Indivior Inc did everything to avoid dealing with generic versions of their medication designed to treat drug addicts during the opioid crisis.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a medication—often prescribed in a film rather than a tablet, like the picture above—that aids individuals struggling with opioid addiction by making it easier for them to stop using the harmful drugs.
It works similarly to other opiates but in a way that doesn't make you feel "high." This can reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to recover from opioid dependence or addiction. attaching to the same parts of the brain that opioids stick to attaching to the same parts of the brain that opioids stick to
Suboxone is generally considered the best in class for opioid addiction treatment. Some individuals might get side effects from Suboxone, like nausea, headaches, and constipation. But if you notice anything concerning dental health, especially tooth decay, you should talk to a doctor.
Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuits
Why are People Filing Suboxone Lawsuits
Dental health problems linked to Suboxone have become a problem for those prescribed the medication. Many have reported some severe dental issues, including:
Severe Tooth Decay
This is one of the biggest issues, resulting in numerous cavities and damaging teeth, often resulting in emotional distress. The majority of cases we have seen so far are potential tooth decay lawsuits.
Suboxone use might erode tooth enamel, making teeth more vulnerable to decay and sensitivity. As a result, patients can develop the following dental problems:
- Dental caries
- Dental crowns or crown replacement
- Tooth loss
Some people on Suboxone experience dry mouth as a side effect, leading to less saliva production. Saliva helps protect teeth from decay, so less of it can mean more dental problems. Saliva helps protect the teeth from harmful bacteria and substances that can cause tooth decay. Saliva protects against dental caries (breakdown of the tooth). Saliva helps protect the teeth.
Suboxone might also cause gum issues, like inflammation which can greatly impact dental health, and periodontal disease, which also has a serious impact on dental health.
Tooth Fractures/Broken Teeth
We are seeing numerous complaints of fractured teeth and cracked teeth supposedly caused by Suboxone film strips.
Many of the aforementioned dental problems also come with the risk of leading to infection. Mouth and dental infections are not only painful and costly but can potentially spread. Depending on the person, infections can also present serious risks in the event they are immunocompromised or elderly.
Fixing these dental problems can be painful and expensive. That's why you should reach out to a skilled defective drug lawyer like Dolman Law Group.
How to Qualify for a Suboxone Lawsuit
- You must have used prescribed Suboxone sublingual strips for at least six months.
- You must have suffered a dental injury or severe dental health problems after starting Suboxone (including any of the following injuries: advanced tooth decay, tooth loss, tooth fracture, substantial cavities, gum disease, and gum injuries).
- You must have undergone routine dental care before using Suboxone so you have a record of your prior dental health.
Allegations Against Indivior for Suboxone Tooth Decay
The lawsuits claim that Indivior didn't warn people enough about the risk that a user may suffer severe tooth decay linked to the opioid addiction treatment drug Suboxone. They also say that Indivior knew or should've known about the risk but didn't do enough to prevent it. Our Suboxone lawyers believe we will learn more over the coming months about how much Indivior knew about the risks of sublingual Suboxone film exposure years ago.
Evidence for Suboxone Causing Tooth Damage
The connection between prescription medication Suboxone use and tooth decay is based on reports and scientific observations. But we need more research to be sure. Here's what's been pointed out (potential side effects):
Lots of people taking Suboxone have reported dental problems, including tooth degradation. These reports have raised awareness about the issue.
Dry Mouth Side Effect
Suboxone can cause dry mouth because it's taken under the tongue. Less saliva can lead to tooth decay since saliva helps protect teeth from acids and harmful bacteria.
Suboxone strips have an acidic pH, which could contribute to enamel erosion and decay if you don't practice good dental hygiene.
Some early studies suggest a link between opioid meds like Suboxone and dental issues, but we need more research for a clear connection.
Possible Punitive Damages in a Suboxone Lawsuit
We believe Indivior knew just how acidic the sublingual strips of Suboxone are and how they can destroy a user's tooth enamel. There have been numerous adverse event reports of severe tooth decay, broken teeth, cracked teeth, and gum infections, among other issues related to the use of Suboxone sublingual form.
Indivior's failure to warn consumers of such issues has resulted in the need for extensive dental treatment for many of the clients we represent. Thus, we believe punitive damages are warranted above and beyond compensatory damages in a Suboxone dental lawsuit.
Studies Connecting Suboxone to Tooth Decay
A few studies have looked into the connection between Suboxone and tooth decay. Some credible sources suggest that Suboxone might increase the risk of dental problems:
- One study in 2016 found that people taking Suboxone were more likely to get tooth decay than those who didn't.
- Another study found that Suboxone users had more cavities and tooth erosion than others.
- A 2022 study found that Suboxone users had a higher risk of dental issues compared to those taking other meds for opioid use disorder, especially if they had dental problems before starting Suboxone. There was a large increase in the risk for adverse dental outcomes.
Injuries in Suboxone Lawsuits
- Root canal
- Cracked Teeth
- Tooth Decay
- Tooth loss and extraction
- Tooth enamel loss
FDA's Response to Suboxone Tooth Decay
In 2022, the FDA warned about the risk of dental problems linked to buprenorphine (Suboxone). Some people had serious oral issues like tooth decay, cavities, infections, and tooth loss, even if they'd never had dental problems before and kept up good dental hygiene.
According to the FDA, more and more medical research and reports are connecting the dissolvable sublingual film with dental problems. So, the FDA told manufacturers to put warnings about these dental risks in the prescribing info and the patient medication guide.
We believe the drug maker Indivior, Inc., failed to include adequate warnings the sublingual film version of this prescription drug could cause serious dental health issues.
Statute of Limitations for the Suboxone Dental Decay Lawsuit
The statute of limitations in mass tort cases is one of those things that is always a concern. For example, in the Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuit, lots of people took the medication years ago and are just now finding out about all the damage it caused. Or 5 years ago, their teeth suffered severe problems, but they didn't know it was because of Suboxone films.
When it comes to the statute of limitations for the Suboxone Tooth Decay Lawsuit, it depends on the state you live in and the specific circumstances of your cases.
To be more clear, it depends on the window of opportunity established by the statute of limitations for defective drug cases or product liability cases in your state. And whether or not your specific circumstances will allow a lawyer to still file a lawsuit on your behalf even if the deadline may have passed. For example, if your dental injuries just started showing, a lawyer may be able to work with you.
It should be noted that in a lot of states, the statute of limitations is starting to run out since Indivior added a warning to Suboxone film in January 2022.
Calling the LLN Suboxone Lawyers is the quickest way to find out, but there is a breakdown of each state and its statute of limitations pertaining to defective drugs or product liability. Those states in bold have reached or are very near to the end of their statute of limitations. Please refer to this list is you are seeking to file a Suboxone lawsuit.
