If you are getting ready to undergo chemotherapy treatments, you will be advised to consult with a dentist at least two weeks beforehand. Side effects of the chemo can lead to serious dental problems that could interrupt the treatment. Having a clean bill of health from your Denver dentist will help keep you on target to get the best results from your regimen.

Check your mouth regularly throughout your therapy for any changes. Your Denver dentist may suggest that you chew gum, or suck on hard candy to increase your saliva flow.
