Just wanted to remind those who haven't started chemo yet to try to get to the dentist first.
My oncologist wouldn't let me go, I had emergency surgery, and it has been a year since last dental visit. Chemo is very, very hard on the mouth and teeth. I finished my chemo recently, was told by my onc.just yesterday that I could now go to the dentist. Praise be!! I have what feels like the beginning of an abcess on bottom right, lost a crown
Well, got that off of my chest:) Just wanted to give new folks a 'heads up'. Go to the dentist first if you can. Keep your mouth moist and drink lots & lots of water. Rinse with salt & soda solution couple times a day.Hoping no one else gets this tooth problem.
