It is important to have a thorough dental check-up before you start cancer treatment to ensure your mouth is in the best possible state to proceed with radiotherapy and / or chemotherapy.
Your restorative dentist will:
- Advise you on how to look after your mouth during and after your cancer treatment.
- Identify any teeth that require dental treatment before your cancer treatment.
- Discuss and plan any possible dental treatment you may need following cancer treatment.
