Oral Health Advice for Cancer Patients

Navigating the challenges of cancer treatment can be daunting, but taking care of your oral health doesn't have to be. Here are some tips to keep your smile radiant:

  • Stay Hydrated: Sip water throughout the day to combat dry mouth, a common side effect of cancer treatments. Hydration is your mouth's best friend!
  • Gentle Oral Care: Use a soft-bristle toothbrush and mild toothpaste. Be gentle with your gums and teeth to avoid irritation.
  • Rinse with Care: Rinse your mouth with a saltwater solution as advised by your dentist to soothe sore spots and prevent infections.
  • Avoid Alcohol-Based Mouthwash: Opt for alcohol-free mouthwash to prevent further dryness and irritation.
  • Nutrition Matters: Maintain a balanced diet rich in soft, easy-to-chew foods. Avoid sugary snacks and acidic foods that can harm your teeth.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Keep up with your dental appointments. We're here to monitor your oral health and provide guidance.
