Taking Care of Teeth After Cancer Treatment

Posted on: July 2nd, 2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

After cancer treatment, you may face many health challenges, including oral health issues. After treatment you might need anything from a simple cleaning to more extensive dental work. Here are some steps to follow so that you can get the best oral health once you finish treatment.

Visit your dentist to find out what is going on in your mouth. Many cancer patients may have severe tooth decay because of the dry mouth that they experience during treatment. A dentist can help treat the decay by filling cavities and doing other procedures to ease oral health issues.

Steps that you can take on your own include brushing regularly, flossing daily, and rinsing your mouth often. Make sure to avoid tobacco and eat nutritious foods. These steps should help you with your oral health after cancer treatment. Speak to a dental professional for any serious treatments or procedures that you may need.
