HI. I am 5 months out from Tonsil cancer treatment. Prior to treatment I had all of my teeth removed. I saw in a previous post that you said that debris below the gum line can cause loss of bone, etc. If you do not have teeth how can you prevent debris in gum line? I brush my tongue after meals and rinse with biotene mouthwash but should I be doing more to prevent jaw problems? Thanks for any help. I have asked my dentist and she usually says brush your tongue. Just want to make sure that I am doing all I can to prevent problems.
