Take Care Of Your Mouth

Inections in your mouth can quickly spread throughout your body. Chemotherapy may increase the risk for decay.

Practice good oral hygiene.

  • Brush your teeth after every meal with a soft toothbrush and at bedtime. 
  • Use a toothpaste with flouride in it. 
  • Floss at least once a day.

See your dentist regularly, at least two times a year.

NOTE: A healthy diet will help prevent tooth decay.  Avoid foods that are high in sugar content.
