lilacpr's Recent CancerCompass Activity

  • lilacpr has created a new message board discussion

    Seven months ago I finished 42 radiations plus chemotherapy for tonsil cancer and I have lost several dental fillings.

    Must I go to a specially trained dentist or will any dentist do? I'm especially worried because I lost a resin filling in one of my front teeth and I know the anesthesia injections in the palate are somewhat painful, but will they cause damage to this radiated tissue?
