The modifications that occur during chemotherapy can affect the patient systemically and orally with various degrees of severity. Some cases can become so severe that they can lead to the discontinuation of the recommended chemotherapy treatment, risking a less then optimal result of success, can decrease the level of quality of life and may even place the patient’s life at risk. Establishing a detailed and complete plan of oral treatment and care for the oncology patient that is to commence chemotherapy is essential for the minimization of chemotherapy-related side effects that may develop starting from the first administration of anti-tumor treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the protocols and conduits of oral and periodontal treatment for the oncology patient before starting chemotherapy.
