If you're living with cancer, seeing the dentist may be the last thing on your mind. At Drs. Chin and Pharar, we take the guesswork and worry out of dental care. We believe in safe, efficient, and comfortable treatments for all our patients.
Treating Cancer Patients
Just as mouth and throat illnesses may compromise bodily functions, chemotherapy treatments may disrupt oral health processes.
Visiting a dental team with the specialized knowledge to treat patients with unique cases is crucial, not just for your health but also for your overall comfort.
Since chemotherapy and radiation are common treatment for cancer, you may be wondering how it affects your mouth. Radiation treatments alone can cause:
- Dry mouth
Radiation exposure can break down both soft and hard tissues in your mouth, leading to one of many adverse conditions. Therefore, we utilize digital x-rays for our patients as they use significantly less radiation than older models.
We have studied how cancer affects each part of the body and will find the best course of treatment for your unique situation. We take great care to ensure that your smile remains beautiful and comfortable for many years to come.
Comfortable Care is a Click Away!
If you're regularly receiving chemotherapy, please call our office! We've made it our goal to raise the bar for community wellness, but we can't do it without you. Schedule an appointment today to ensure your mouth is in the best shape of its life.
