Preparing for radiation therapy?

Our dentistry team will work with your radiation oncology team to help you prepare for therapy and ensure the best possible health for your teeth after treatment. Services include:

  • Comprehensive exam, including X-rays
  • Removal of all decay, infection and problem teeth
  • A treatment plan tailored to your diagnosis and treatment
  • Custom fluoride prescription and trays for long-term use

Radiation treatment puts you at risk for osteoradionecrosis, which can make healing after future dental procedures difficult or impossible. Our services will greatly decrease your chance of developing this condition.
