In brief: Root surface decay

Meth mouth is a relatively new term in dentistry.
Meth dries out the mouth by inhibiting the production/release of saliva. Mouth becomes more acidic from this. Appetite suppressant side effects of meth also cause more consumption soda/candy and the like for energy. Enamel/dentinal decay happens at the later stages and can be very rapidly and very extensively.

In brief: Decay and stain

Meth mouth is just a name for advanced decay of the teeth that was caused by using meth and the usual associated diet of meth users.
Meth users usually get a lot of decay at the gum line of the teeth.
