Cancer treatment is something that might always be on your mind, but you shouldn’t forget about oral health. Your dentist can help you keep treatment on track. Watch this video on keeping your mouth healthy throughout cancer treatment.
The symptoms of cancer and the effects of many treatment options can weaken your immune system, which makes you more likely to experience oral health issues. These issues can then delay your treatment and your recovery. Use a toothbrush with soft bristles to brush your teeth twice each day, and be sure to floss gently. Talk to your dentist about artificial saliva, topical ointments, and anti-inflammatory rinses.
