Return to FAQs

A cancer diagnosis is a scary thing. With so many things to consider and so many worries, your dental health may be the last thing on your mind.

Unfortunately, cancer and its treatments can be devastating to your oral health. Paying attention to your oral healthcare and taking care of your dental and periodontal health will help you adjust back to normal after your cancer treatment is complete.

If you’ve received a cancer diagnosis, please call our Glendale dental office and schedule an examination and consultation with Dr. Narra. She has ample experience treating patients with cancer and will provide the appropriate and necessary treatments with a high level of concern and compassion. Cancer treatments, particularly chemotherapy and radiation, can wreak havoc on your periodontal health, leaving you open for infections, especially since your immune system is already compromised. We’ll help you avoid these complications to make your cancer treatment at least a little bit easier.

Don’t let other aspects of your healthcare fall to the side because of a cancer diagnosis. We’ll be by your side, cheering you on during your treatment and helping you maintain a positive outlook and good dental health throughout this challenging time.
