What’s Inside the Kit

The OC 10% nanohydroxyapatite (nHAP) toothpaste with xylitol offers several unique benefits that makes it a superior choice for cancer patients. The combination of remineralization, antibacterial action, moisture retention, and gentle formulation makes it a superior choice for maintaining oral health in cancer patients.

Ingredients

Sorbitol, water, glycerin, hydroxyapatite, hydrated silica, xylitol, calcium carbonate, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, sodium, benzoate, potassium sorbate, cocamidopropyl betaine, stevia rebaudiana leaf/stem extract, xanthan gum, mentha piperita (peppermint) oil, mentha viridis (spearmint) leaf oil, gaultheria procumbens (wintergreen) leaf oil, menthol

Why it’s good for cancer patients

Nanohydroxyapatite or nHAP is a biocompatible non toxic material that closely resembles the natural mineral component of tooth enamel and dentin. nHAP particles are less likely to cause irritation or sensitivity, which is crucial for cancer patients whose oral tissues may already be compromised. Unlike fluoride, there’s no risk of fluorosis or toxicity with overuse of nHAP, making it safer for frequent use. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that has been shown to reduce the levels of decay-causing bacteria It also helps in maintaining moisture, which is beneficial for dry mouth, a common side effect of cancer treatments. Xylitol helps maintain a balanced oral microbiome by selectively targeting harmful bacteria without disrupting beneficial ones. The pleasant mild flavor is especially great for sensitive teeth and makes it easier to maintain a healthy oral cavity.

The OC soothing non-alcohol mouth rinse effectively supports oral health while providing healing and relief from chemo mouth. It contains the right ratio of salt and soda that moisturizes and lubricates the mouth while protecting irritated or inflamed oral tissues caused by chemotherapy and radiation. The salt and soda combination has natural cleansing properties that help remove debris and bacteria from the oral cavity while reducing the risk of infection.

Ingredients

Sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate

Why it’s good for cancer patients

The OC mouth rinse helps draw out excess fluid from swollen tissues, reducing swelling and discomfort. Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acids in the mouth, helping to maintain a balanced pH. This is crucial since chemotherapy can cause an acidic environment, leading to further irritation and discomfort. Chemotherapy can also cause a metallic or unpleasant taste in the mouth. Rinsing with a salt and soda solution can help neutralize these tastes, improving the overall sense of taste and making eating more pleasant.
