After completing radiation in early 2007 I started to have issues about a year later with facial swelling and random fevers. After many trips to the ER and Oncologist, I found out it was was due to my teeth. Before I started radiation I had never had a cavity. After treatment, I saw my dentist every three months like I was told. Anyway, at this point all of my top teeth have been crowned and I've lost 4 teeth on the bottom. I recently underwent unsuccessful gum graphing and at this point my dentist is recommending pulling the remaining bottom teeth and trying dental implants. I've already had 20 dives in the hyperbaric chamber but am very nervous at the thought of implants. I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with their teeth post radiation and has had implants. If so, did it work?
