Resumen

ACOSTA-GALEANO, Matías Fabián  y  JACQUETT-TOLEDO, Ninfa Lucía. Importance of the dentist within the multidisciplinary team of Oncology. Mem. Inst. Investig. Cienc. Salud [online]. 2017, vol.15, n.3, pp.93-98. ISSN 1812-9528.  https://doi.org/10.18004/mem.iics/1812-9528/2017.015(03)93-098.

The importance of the dentist within the oncology multidisciplinary staff in scientific articles extracted from databases such as PubMed, SciELO, CrossRef, USC Journals, Dental Scientific Journal, Elsevier, Researchgate, Google Scholar, Wiley Online Library and Springer was reviewed. Based on 32 selected articles, it is concluded that the dentist as part of the oncology multidisciplinary team plays an extremely important role, since its integration allows counteracting the different oral complications that arise as a consequence of the different antineoplastic therapies to which the cancer patients are subjected. These oral complications must be treated unfailingly, since their presence in the oral cavity constitutes an even greater risk as far as systemic infection is concerned. Here is the importance of the dentist within the oncology multidisciplinary staff, avoiding and preventing the spread of infectious foci and thus improving the quality of life of cancer patients.

Palabras clave : dental treatment; oral complications; antineoplastic therapy; multidisciplinary team; oncology.
