Tell Your Dentist
Anyone facing cancer therapy already knows—chemotherapy for the treatment of cancer is a serious response to a serious condition.
What they may not know is that a dental appointment scheduled at least two weeks before treatment begins can reduce the risk of complication and help preserve salivary glands.
The reason is this: with radiation treatment and chemotherapy, changes in saliva occur that can encourage decay and dry mouth, diminish taste, and thicken soft tissues—to name a few.
All these side effects may be overcome if gums are healthy, restorations are intact, and oral hygiene habits are impeccable.
So, if someone you know is scheduled for cancer therapy, share this information with them. A pre-treatment dental appointment made now will go a long way toward improving their recovery potential once therapy is complete.
