Chemotherapy and radiation treatments and transplants affect many different parts of the body, including the mouth, teeth and gums. The dental clinic at Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas provides preventive and proactive oral health care before and after cancer treatment or organ transplantation.
Organ transplant recipients have a higher risk of oral cancer and should undergo regular screenings to detect cell abnormalities or irregularities.
Dental clinic and lab services are designed to reduce the incidence of oral complications associated with such treatments. The dentist and dental hygienists on the medical staff at Baylor Dallas understand the special oral needs of cancer and transplant patients, and will coordinate with your primary physicians to take an active stance in preserving your dental health.
