San Diego Emergency Dentist Sheds Light on Impact of Breast Cancer Therapy on Oral Health
Dr. Sonny Aryan Offers Support to Women Suffering from Dental Emergencies in Their Fight against Breast Cancer.
Dr. Sonny Aryan, an emergency dentist in San Diego, is shedding light on the impact of breast cancer treatments on oral health during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to published research, breast cancer therapies can increase the risk of gingivitis, periodontal infection and disease, tooth loss and other dental complications.
“Commonly, bone less can be attributed to untreated periodontal disease, but bone loss can also be attributed to other causes, including breast cancer therapies,” said Dr. Aryan, San Diego emergency dentist at Dentist Pacific Beach. “Additionally, chemotherapy can reduce salivary flow which can also lead to dental complications.”
“We’re very sensitive to the needs of our patients that are fighting breast cancer and the impact their treatments can potentially have on their oral health,” Dr. Aryan continued. “Our staff is available around the clock to assist if their treatments result in the need for emergency dental services in San Diego.”
Dr. Aryan’s dental practice is based in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego and offers 24-7 appointments to meet the needs of patients, and ensure that they don’t have to wait for regular office hours to get relief from dental pain. The practice offers emergency dental assistance for severe toothaches, tooth abscess, tooth loss, loose braces, broken brace wires, injury to soft tissue, objects trapped between teeth and other dental emergencies.
