Oral Supportive care during cancer therapy
During cancer therapy oral complications and pain may develop and patient is at risk for oral and systemic infections or treatment interruptions, modifications or dose reductions. Oral complications are also related with increased hospital admissions, antibiotics and other supportive care needs. The success of cancer therapy is adversely affected, while the cost of therapy increases.
Oral Supportive care during cancer therapy can keep, with the intensive oral care protocols, a clean and moist mouth. Oral pain, the severity of oral mucositis, the risk for infections, gingival bleeding and other complications can be prevented or may be mild when the mouth is clean and moist.
Regular oral care during cancer therapy will also contribute to the early diagnosis and effective management of infections, which may develop. An oral site of infection may be the source of fever of unknown aetiology. Signs and symptoms of infection may not be diagnostic due to myelotoxicity, related to chemotherapy.
