Oral Rehabilitation

After cancer therapy, depending on your oral health status, missing teeth can be replaced by:

  • Removable prostheses such as partial or complete dentures
  • Fixed prostheses such as bridges or implants
  • Combination of removable and fixed prostheses

Also, it is important to get regular dental check ups and routine dental cleaning by a dentist or dental hygienist to ensure healthy gums and treat dental decay early to avoid the need for complex dental treatment like root canal therapy or tooth extraction.

In those who had undergone radiation therapy, it is important to eliminate any possible sources of bone infection that can lead to osteoradionecrosis of the jaw bones.
