Reply to "Osteoradionecrosis - Our Experience"

Hello 200

How did it go? Sorry, I missed your question. I am in Melbourne visiting my daughter. Here is my belated advice:

quote:
Just make sure they are aware that you had radiotherapy and know which areas were and were not irradiated (as that determines if there is a risk of ORN if you have an extraction). If there is a risk, is the tooth suitable for having root canal treatment and if so, do they have someone experienced (a specialist) to do it or would you be better off having your dentist do this. (Your more experienced dentist (as they do more root canals in practice than in hospital) might feel happier having a letter from the department requesting him to do it.)


Hope that helps.

Best wishes
Vinod
