Oral care before starting radiotherapy As a preventive measure: 1. Routine oral hygiene practice • Tooth brushing – Soft nylon bristled brush is preferred – Brush two to three times daily • Flossing

– Once daily

2. Dental examination at least one month before starting radiotherapy to allow ample time for healing from any dental procedures.

Oral care during and after radiotherapy 1. Routine oral hygiene practice as above (Foam toothbrush may be used if the use of regular toothbrush is not possible) 2. On a constant look out for mouth soreness, oral ulcers, and signs of infection (white patches) so that treatment can be started early. 3. Bland rinse • Varieties:

– Normal saline 0.9%* – Sodium bicarbonate solution# – Normal saline plus sodium bicarbonate solution

• Repeat rinsing every two to four hours or as required for pain * Normal saline solution is prepared by adding approximately one teaspoonful of table salt to a glass of water. The solution may be at room or refrigerated temperatures depending on patient’s preference. It enhances oral lubrication and stimulates the salivary glands to increase production of saliva. #

Sodium bicarbonate solution is prepared by adding approximately one to two tablespoonfuls of sodium bicarbonate powder to a glass of water. It can be used when thick viscous saliva is present.
