Feel better…Save Teeth and Bones…Fight Cancer
Cancer treatment can cause side effects in your mouth. A dental checkup before treatment starts can help prevent painful mouth problems.
A dentist will help protect your mouth, teeth and jaw bones from damage caused by head and neck radiation and chemotherapy. Children also need special protection for their growing teeth and facial bones.
Serious side effects in the mouth can delay, or even stop, cancer treatment. To fight cancer best, your cancer care team should include a dentist.
