Summer can throw your oral care routine out the window. It’s a time when our delicious fruits are readily available, icecream becomes high on our food favourite and icy poles help with hydrating, all making for a high-in-sugar diet.


Drinking water during Summer provides a vital role for our oral health. Keep an eye on how much sugar you are consuming such as sports drinks or fruit juices that increase the chance of dental decay and enamel erosion. We are more likely to graze and snack-attack increasing dental problems.

Add to that your chemotherapy treatments can cause sores in the mouth and throat, as well as dryness, irritation or bleeding. Your teeth, gums and inside of the mouth need TLC. 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.
