Starting Chemo? How Are Your Teeth?

cancer related tooth risks Yuma

If you are scheduled for cancer treatment due to a recent diagnosis or relapse, oral health is probably not your first priority. However, the team at Yuma Family Dentist urges you to give some attention to your teeth to prevent or minimize common cancer-related dental complications.

According to the National Institutes of Health, cancer treatment often takes a heavy toll on dental health.

Common Complications of Chemotherapy and/or Radiation

Inflammation of the mucous membranes
Viral, bacterial, and fungal infections
Mouth dryness (increases risk of cavities)
Poor nutrition due to eating difficulties
Mouth pain
Oral bleeding
Lifelong risk of tooth decay
Loss of elasticity of masticatory muscles (may make opening mouth difficult)
Bone recession due to decreased blood flow
Tooth loss

The Yuma Family Dentist in Yuma AZ wants to help you maintain oral health before, during, and after your cancer treatment. We offer comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry. We extend to our dental patients battling cancer our sincere hopes for your successful treatment. It is a pleasure to serve your dental needs.
