Complications in the mouth related to cancer treatment
 

Each year about 400,000 people (including many in the Westerville, Columbus and New Albany areas) with cancer develop treatment-related complications in the mouth ranging from lesions to chronic dry mouth to bone disintegration.  If serious, these complications can be life threatening.  While many are unavoidable, some can be prevented or minimized by Dr. Jarvis.

Dr. Jarvis recommends that whenever possible, a pre-therapy dental evaluation with a full set of mouth x-rays be performed. Any decay, gum disease and abscesses should be treated, if time permits, prior to chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.

Even patients who have no pain or dental disorders need a thorough cleaning.  Our goal at Parker M Jarvis DDS & Associates Inc is to have the patient's mouth in optimal health prior to beginning anti-cancer therapy.

If you have questions regarding cancer treatment and your dental health, please call our office at (614) 882-5208.
