Oral health is an important part of cancer treatment that is often overlooked. When a patient undergoes treatment, it is imperative that they receive individualized recommendations and appropriate dental hygiene products to protect their mouth and prevent short-term and long-term damage. By incorporating oral health into our patient’s overall treatment plan, we minimize infection, decrease harmful side effects and prevent delays and breaks in their course of treatment.
