Chemotherapy can cause sores in the mouth and throat, as well as dryness, irritation or bleeding.
It is not only the teeth that need a little TLC, but the gums and inside of the mouth need looking after too. We have added Oral7 toothpaste and mouthwash to our Kit along with a Kit toothbrush. When in treatment you should wash your mouth out four times a day and brush your teeth after every meal with a soft toothbrush (we’ve popped one in Kit) because your gums get very sensitive.
As Shelli would say “Winning and losing treatments are in the mouth. If you can eat and drink, you can fuel your body. Looking after your mouth is a not negotiable!”
