How Can Dr Heff’s ‘Remarkable Mints’ Help Cancer Patients?
How Can Dr Heff's ‘Remarkable Mints’ help cancer patients?
By improving ‘dry mouth’.
Dr Heff’s founders, dentists Mike Heffernan and Toby Edwards-Lunn, know the side effects of cancer treatment can be extremely uncomfortable and debilitating. One of the unfortunate consequences of chemotherapy and radiotherapy is dry mouth, which is a reduction in the quality and quantity of saliva. Why is saliva so important? Well, saliva plays a key role in our health in three major ways:
- It protects our mouth from harmful bacteria, viruses and fungal infections.
- It helps to lubricate our mouth and stops food from lodging on our teeth
- It naturally repairs our teeth and neutralises our acids.
So, you can see how reduction in the quality or quantity in saliva can disturb the whole balance of our oral health and make it difficult to eat, talk, chew or swallow.
To ease patient distress was one of the motivations behind creating Dr Heff’s ‘Remarkable Mints’. Our mints are the only scientifically formulated oral supplement designed to help repair and remineralise teeth that have suffered as a result of cancer treatment.
Our Remarkable Mints’ naturally stimulate the saliva in your mouth, which increases your body’s natural protection and, in most cases, can help you regain your sense of taste when eating foods.
Improving your quality of life is our principal aim and we are proud to be working with The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Charity by offering oral hygiene advice and discounts on Dr Heff’s ‘Remarkable Mints’ to patients, sufferers, and their caregivers.
"Saliva production and maintaining oral hygiene is really important for cancer sufferers and Dr Heff’s 'Remarkable Mints' will stimulate whatever amount of saliva exists."
