Good oral hygiene is “not negotiable.” Chemotherapy and other cancer treatments can cause sores in the mouth and throat, as well as dryness, irritation or bleeding. This can be very frustrating resulting in difficulties eating, chewing or swallowing causing discomfort and bleeding in the mouth. The pain in your mouth can be so severe that swallowing becomes difficult resulting in you avoiding eating and drinking.
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 included Oral 7 Moisturising Toothpaste, Oral 7 Moisturising Mouthwash and a soft toothbrush in our Kit for Cancer case because we know how important it is to keep your mouth clean and healthy to help prevent infection.
Please speak to your medical team for advice on treating mouth problems affecting your mouth, lips or throat causing them to become dry and sore.
