My husband met with the cancer dentist, and he has advised him to get all 4 of his wisdom teeth pulled before he does radiation because they could cause problems during treatment. The dentist said he doesnt have to get this done before the chemo (which starts next week) but before radiation.
Has anyone else been advised to have wisdom teeth (or any teeth) pulled before treatment? What if we don't do this? Will it really cause problems later on?
Any info on tooth care would be so helpful. Thanks.
