Cancer Treatments

Requirements for patients about to be treated for cancer differ from those that are required by the average patient in a dental practice. While on occasion it is permissible to observe areas of suspected infection in some patients, the rules, of which there are none incidentally, change when a patient is diagnosed with cancer.

As a guiding principle the primary goals of treatment are: treat or remove sources or potential sources of infection and clean up and promote scrupulous oral hygiene and maintenance.
