Taking Care of Teeth After Cancer Treatment

Posted on: February 4th, 2019 | Categories: Uncategorized

There are plenty of health challenges to face after cancer treatment, including oral health issues. You might need anything from a simple cleaning to more extensive dental work. Here are some tips 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 due to dry mouth syndrome that occurs during treatment. A dentist can help treat the decay by filling cavities and doing other procedures to ease oral health issues.

What can you do in your own time to keep your mouth healthy? First, keep up a daily oral health care routine, including daily brushing, flossing, and rinsing. Second, make sure to avoid tobacco and eat nutritious foods (such as fruits and vegetables!). Although you may already be well aware of the importance of these steps, they’re especially critical for maintaining a healthy post-treatment smile.

Speak to a dental professional for any serious treatments or procedures that you may need.
