Cancer & Dental Health In Richardson, TX

Many cancer patients develop complications that affect the mouth. These mild to severe side effects can include mouth sores, infection, dry mouth, sensitive gums and cavities.Man With Toothache

As a courtesy to the community, Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson offers complimentary fluoride trays for anyone going through chemotherapy treatments.

Because chemo can make your mouth more at risk for infection as well as make your gums bleed more easily, fluoride is used to help prevent the formation of cavities.

Chemotherapy & Mouth Sores

Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to treat cancer. These drugs kill cancer cells, but they may also harm normal cells, including cells in the mouth. Side effects include problems with your teeth and gums; the soft, moist lining of your mouth; and the glands that make saliva (spit).

Dr. Korenman carries a natural, oral care line that is very soothing for those going through cancer treatments.  The line is also beneficial for the dry mouth side effects often experienced by cancer patients.Effervess-all natural aloe vera Toothpaste

Developed by a Dentist, the Effervess Natural Oral Care line does not contain any hydrated silica or baking soda, no SLS and no harsh chemicals.

In fact, the products are called “Nature’s Oral Care” because they feature Aloe Vera, which is an ancient plant known for healing, moisturizing and antibacterial and anti fungal properties.  Effervess also contains Xylitol a natural sweetener from American Birch Bark found to help fight plaque build-up and strengthen enamel.

Effervess: Nature’s Oral Care products can be purchased at Loveable Smiles in Richardson. 972-231-0585

Dr. Korenman uses the ViziLite Plus, which is a 5-minute test that uses fluorescent light to spot abnormal changes in the mucous membranes that line the inside of the mouth and throat.

Additionally, Dr. Korenman will go over the patient’s medical history, check for any discolorations (red spots, white spots, ulcers etc) and/or abnormal lumps around the oral tissues (cheeks, hard palate, tongue, floor of the mouth, back of throat etc), face and neck.

We simply use the Vizilite Plus rinse and the special fluorescent light to inspect the oral/pharyngeal area, and we will palpitate/massage the neck (thyroid) to check for any abnormal lumps. The entire screening takes less than 15 minutes.

Every hour, of every day one American dies of oral cancer.

It is assumed that Oral Cancer is mainly a disease of older people, contracted after a lifetime of smoking and drinking.

But things are changing and dentists are seeing an increase in young people with mouth cancer.

Despite the common risk factors, EVERYONE is at risk REGARDLESS of their risk factors.

Dentists are often the first line of defense against oral cancer, through the process of early discovery. They help find cancer at its earliest stage, when the chances for successful treatment are highest.

Common Signs of Oral Cancer:

  • Swelling/thickenings, lumps or bumps, rough spots/crusts/or eroded areas on the lips, gums, or other areas inside the mouth
  • The development of velvety white, red, or speckled (white and red) patches in the mouth
  • Unexplained bleeding in the mouth
  • Unexplained numbness, loss of feeling, or pain/tenderness in any area of the face, mouth, or neck
  • Persistent sores on the face, neck, or mouth that bleed easily and do not heal within two weeks
  • A soreness or feeling that something is caught in the back of the throat
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing, speaking, or moving the jaw or tongue
  • Hoarseness, chronic sore throat, or changes in the voice
  • Ear pain
  • A change in the way your teeth or dentures fit together – a change in your “bite”
  • Dramatic weight loss

Call Loveable Smiles in Richardson for your Oral Cancer screening. The entire process takes less than 15 minutes. 972-231-0585
