oral cancer, chemotherapy, dentist

What is oral chemotherapy?

Oral chemotherapy is taking drugs to treat oral cancer, in the form of capsules or tablets, and not delivered through intravenous injections. Many findings have shown that the therapeutic effect of oral chemotherapy is as powerful as intravenous injecting of drugs and it is more convenient as well, since you can ingest mouth chemo drugs at home.

When to see the dentist?

When you are under oral chemotherapy treatment, you will need regular health check-ups. The doctor will determine your progress or if there is a relapse through scans and blood tests. He will check to see if your body is responding to the treatment and whether you are correctly taking your medications. You need to visit the doctor if there is a relapse.
