Tetracycline Class Action Lawsuit

I was given an antibiotic as a child in the 1960s, just as my second teeth were all due to come in. They came in as a lovely yellowy/greeny shade. I have been self conscious all my life and don't like smiling. Who can afford veneers?!!! Pfizer where is your response.

Pfizer's tetracycline

Agree with all. My teeth have been capped and recapped. Back teeth literally fell apart and fronts are following.
Please email me if anyone finds a lawyer.
I was born in 61. They had to know by then.

A smile from me is a rare thing

I've always been self-conscious of my yellow-brown tetracycline stained teeth. I was given medicine as a child before I could even speak and my entire life I have not been able to have a nice big toothy white grin without feeling awful. I've learned to give half-hearted closed mouth grins instead. I can't ever have a good old laugh without thinking about how I'm exposing my ugly teeth.

I grew up in Canada but the medicine was taken when my parents lived in Derbyshire England.

Pfizer / Tetracycline

Mother took Tetracycline while pregnant with me in 1964. I have discolored yellow teeth. As a child I was ridiculed by other children asking me if I didn't brush my teeth. In 1980 I underwent some of the first teeth bleaching procedures at a teaching medical facility in Omaha. It was one of the most painful procedures I have ever had and I did it numerous times. At the time the medical facility didn't realize that it would not help. It seems as though Pfizer should have some liability for all of the pain their medication has caused

tetracycline ruined my teeth

I was born in 1953 and had been given tetracycline more then I can count. Due to that med I am in the process getting of implants.
The cost for the bottom teeth will be 20.000$. Dentist said the tops will need implants. I also will be in N.C. and will stop by your offices for payment.
Guard yourself accordingly,

Pfizer Tetracycline

Like others I too was subjected to tetracycline as a child, I could have bought a house with what my teeth have cost me and are still costing memotivated by the haunts of a childs lack of self esteem, the comments of rotten teeth, braces??, you should brush are comments we were exposed to because of greed. By 1964 there would have been enough evidence to question the use of tetracycline. Not good enough. Do the right thing Pfitzer.

Terrible Teeth

I was born 1960 and was a very sickly child many kidney infection, tonsillitis.
I was at the Drs. office a lot. The drug (Tetracycline) was given to me for many times for many things..
It wasn't long and my teeth came in nasty looking and gray. Kids will be kids and my sister and I fought with her making fun of the color of my teeth, so did many kids at school....Saying " Don't you ever brush your teeth?"
I teared up reading the other stories people wrote about...it brought back bad memories.
There are NONE of my school pictures with me smiling.. NASTY LOOKING TEETH.. I didn't want to see my picture hanging on the wall next to my sister's with her beautiful WHITE smile.

I am hoping that something will be done with Pfizer giving me a reason to smile and not care what color my teeth are now...Dark gray and yellow.. soft and chipped.
It isn't something you look forward to this late in life is getting the only WHITE teeth I've ever had - only my will be dentures!!

Tetracycline staining and root damage

I had tetracycline in 1960, when I was 1 year old, for a kidney infection. I have suffered the rest of my life with the a staining and thin enamel. I have had dozen of cosmetic procedures, cracked teeth, crowns, etc. Now, I it looks like I will either need a root canal or lose my front teeth to some odd root damage from the tetracycline. I wish more dentists really know all the things that can go wrong and how to deal with it, for this issue. I do feel Pfizer should pay for the repair work for this lifetime problem.

Why is Pfizer not paying for this? Why is there no lawsuit for us?

Stained & Danaged teeth from Tetracycline

This complaint is against Pfizer Company. My daughter was given tetracycline as a baby in 1962. Her teeth came in yellow and stained looking. She has suffered with this cosmetic affects as well as the terrible expense of caps due to soft teeth. Now in her adult years she is experiencing infections due to failing fillings from soft teeth crumbling. implants are the only answer and the expense is prohibitive. Has any lawsuits ever been filed against Pfizer for their negligence in notifying the medical community of the terrible side affects of this drug? Please respond.

discolored and soft teeth

I was born in 1958 and was given Tetracycline for asthma, my teeth came in soft and discolored and now are crumbling. It is not fair that the Pfizer company does not subsidize at least replacing with dentures as the problem gets worse every year

Tetracycline stain

I am 60 years old. As a child and had bronchitis yearly and was given tetracycline annually. When my teeth came in they were stained and greyish. This always made me extremely self conscious. Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars bleaching with several "fix" it products to no avail. I had my gums burnt because one of the bleaching techniques required holding a light close to my teeth. I've had trays made several times as well. I even tried bonding, which chipped off in a matter of weeks. I've tried every tooth whiting strip and toothpaste that promised results. Yet nothing works. Can you please take responsibility for my years of being embarrassed and come up with a permanent fix. I hear pros and cons about veneers and a new kit whitening system. I'm tired of paying for things that don't work. I dream of smiling I don't want to have this issue any longer do something please
Thank you
Susan

Stained Teeth

Born in 1974, my mom was given tetracycline when she was pregnant and as a result, my teeth are horribly stained. Veneers, caps and dentures are crazy expensive. However I just found out about the KORS whiting system for tetracycline damaged teeth. Average price is $700 and takes about 4 weeks. I'm highly considering trying it because of the price. Although I still think PFIZER should be covering the expense.

Tetracycline

I was born in 1957 I too was given Tetracycline for a bladder infection as a small child. It has ruined my teeth I'm so self conscious and embarrassed to smile and have been brought to tears at times and feel so miserable. As I was only a child I had no choice in this and I'm sure my mother put her trust in the experts. It will cost a fortune to have my teeth rectified as it is classed as cosmetic! I am surprised no lawyers have noticed this as it has happened to so many people.

Broken and stained Tetracycline teeth

I was given Tetracycline as a young child to combat sore throats, ear infections and even a bladder infection. I was also given Tetracycline as a young adult to combat acne. I am now 54 years old and I have chipped, broken and horribly discolored teeth. This ongoing problem has made it extremely difficult to have a normal social life. I'm afraid to smile and I refuse to have my picture taken. It has destroyed my social life because as soon as I smile people look at me like I am dirty or that I just simply don't care about my teeth and appearance. I care very much! I recently visited my new dentist and was told that it would cost upwards of $5000.00 to just replace my four front top teeth. I have worked very hard my entire adult life but it is financially impossible for me to be able to afford this besides the cost of having all of my other teeth taken care of. This injustice for me and millions like me is ridiculous! Like many other people, I do not want to sue for thousands if not millions of dollars. I just want the opportunity to smile with a healthy mouth. Please do the responsible and ethical thing by providing a fund for people so that we can smile.

Tetracycline-stained teeth

As a child, I was constantly sick in the early 60s with strep throat and earaches. It took several years and the doctor used massive doses of Tetracycline until my tonsils were finally removed. Well, I stopped getting sick, but my teeth had turned kind of a grayish/slightly greenish color. I hated taking pictures for school or at family functions. There were actually pictures of me standing with my hands folded across my chest with me frowning. A few years ago, I met a dentist. He immediately told me he knew my general age, because of the color of my teeth! Thanks, Doc. Most people thought that it was smoking or drinking black coffee.

People are so judgemental in today's society where teeth are so white. One practically has to wear sunglasses to look at others smile. It seems like you have a problem, or are lazy/careless if you don't have radioactively-white teeth. I was told whiteners will not work, that I'd have to get veneers or even go so far as caps. I cannot afford to do that. The only thing that is good about my teeth is that fact that they're straight.

Tetracycline Class Action Lawsuit

Why hasn't any lawyer picked this up?

After reading these posts veneers are definitely not the way to solve this problem.

The only post I have read, and I have read many, was from someone who got dentures.

Aren't dentures painful and expensive to put in? First ripping out all the teeth!

Please comment on dentures.

Thank you!

Tetracycline damage to teeth and bones

I was given tetracycline as a premature baby in 1964. Like others here I suffered from stained and malformed teeth. I have brushed and flossed like crazy just to offset the permanent translucent grey that affects my esteem daily. I have also suffered a lifetime of chronic joint and bone pain which, like my teeth, gets progressively worse with every passing year. Sadly, I have little faith in the drug or law industries to do what's right.
