Mouth Care

It is important to take care of your mouth, teeth and gums during radiation.

  • Careful brushing of your teeth can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease, mouth sores and jaw infections.
  • Be sure to tell your dentist that you received radiation to the head and neck area.
  • Talk to your doctor or dentist about any problems you are having.
