“Preventing and controlling oral complications can help you continue cancer treatment and have a better quality of life.” -Cancer.gov
The American Cancer Society estimated that there were 1,665,540 new cases of cancer in the U.S in 2014. Chemotherapy and Radiation treatment causes many side effects to a patient’s oral health, including dry mouth, infections, oral mucositis and painful ulcers. OraCare’s ability to use Activated Chlorine Dioxide can aid in the oral side effects caused by treatment, and keep patients more comfortable. OraCare is powerful and safe enough to remove the microbes that can cause disabling side effects to cancer patients. The oral cavity is an exceptional environment for the growth of bacteria, viruses, and fungi in healthy patients. In immune compromised patients it can allow for uninhibited overgrowth of microbes. OraCare can alleviate the negative side effects of radiation and chemotherapy treatment with Activated Chlorine Dioxide keeping the mouth a healthier place. Many cancer centers are adding OraCare into their plan for treatment to prevent future discomfort and infection for patients.
