Just a reminder for all those who are undergoing treatment or have completed treatment for Esophageal Cancer: Your teeth sometimes take a beating from the side effects of the treatment.
Please see your dentist when you start treatment and follow-up with dental care even if active treatment has been completed. Our dentist prescribed/provided a mouth rinse and special toothpaste to help strengthen my husband's teeth. So far, so good. It's been over two years and his teeth are currently in good condition.
EC fighters have so much on their plate. It is hard to think about other things. Hopefully, good dental care can reduce future problems. BMGky
