Biotène provides Oral Care for Oncology Patients. The Biotene product line has been specially formulated for cancer patients. It is the #1 recommended dry mouth treatment by the Oral Cancer Foundation.
Cancer treatments can cause dry mouth or salivary gland dysfunction, can cause mouth sores and can increase the risk of oral infections. Oral complications occur in almost all patients receiving radiation for head and neck malignancies, in more than 75% of bone marrow transplant recipients, and in nearly 40% of patients receiving chemotherapy. Some complications only occur during treatment, and others, such as dry mouth, may persist long after treatment is complete.
Oral complications during cancer treatment may include
Mucositis – mild to sever inflammation and ulceration of the mucous membranes
Infection – bacterial, viral an fungal resulting from dry mouth or other conditions
Dental Decay and Demineralization
Bleeding – from decreased platelets
Taste alteration – ranging from mild to severe, and unpleasant to loss of taste
