October is breast cancer awareness month and most of us have been touched by this disease through a family member, friend, or co-worker having been diagnosed. Early detection, regular checkups and self checks are most important.
Through the treatment stages of breast cancer, one of the side effects can be “dry mouth syndrome”. This can dramatically increase your chances of oral health issues and higher decay rates. In support of our patients who may be dealing this side effect, we would like to offer to these particular patients a free tube of Fluoridex, a prescription strength fluoride toothpaste to help combat the increased risk of decay.
Please know we care, and our positive thoughts and prayers go out to all families battling this disease.
