A PROACTIVE APPROACH TO COMBAT ORAL MUCOSITIS
To put it simply, Chemo Mouthpiece is an ice pack for inside the mouth. The device is made of three components: water, salt and medical grade silicone.
Its innovative design has two chambers: an inner chamber filled with pure water and an outer chamber filled with saltwater. When the Chemo Mouthpiece is put in a standard freezer, the inner pure water chamber will freeze solid, but the outer saltwater chamber will not. The outer saltwater chamber stays ice cold, which allows the mouthpiece to cool a patient’s oral cavity.
Chemotherapy and radiation can cause oral mucositis and ice chips are commonly used as a preventative method. Chemo Mouthpiece is a more efficient option than ice as it cools the whole oral cavity, not just the bottom half.
