Can Tomoxiphen cause tooth loss?

No

Tooth
it should not effect your teeth however Tamoxifen has rarely caused very serious (possibly fatal) strokes, blood clots in the lungs/legs, and cancer of the uterus. Im assuming you have cancer...what else are you doing?? you can email me at zeines@aol.com. I would STRONGLY Suggest you have your mercury fillings and root calan teeth removed

Could clenching teeth cause tooth loss?

It may..

Dental
Grinding and clenching of teeth can cause fractures in the teeth that can render them unrestorable. In addition, excessive parafunctional forces can cause bone loss, and thus weaken the tooth's bony support, resulting in premature loss.

Would an allergic reaction cause tooth loss?

No

Allergies
Allergic reactions are usually systemic, or they can be localized where the allergen is causing the irritation (like pollen in your eyes or nose causing itching and sneezing). Tooth loss via bone loss can be attributed to long standing periodontal disease.

Dr. James A. Beck answered:

How will methamphetamine drug use cause tooth decay?

Dry mouth, soda

Meth
Methamphetamine causes dry mouth aka xerostomia. The saliva natural cleanses the teeth and buffers acidic plaque. Plaque acids are what eat away at enamel and causes tooth decay. Meth addicts with dry mouth tend to moisten their mouths with inexpensive sugary sodas which makes the problem even worse. Also meth addicts are largely consumed with getting more meth rather than oral hygiene.

Dr. Daniel Wolter answered:

What are the possible causes of tooth loss besides poor dental hygiene?

3 Main Causes

Cavity
Except for rare medical/genetic disorders, tooth loss is caused by three main things: gum disease, large cavities, & trauma. Gum disease is the most common, accounting for about 80% of lost teeth. Nearly all these conditions can be prevented with excellent oral hygiene at home & regular dental visits. Unfortunately, you can't do it yourself. You need professional help to keep your mouth healthy.
