Bunch of Questions...
Brother slated to started radiation in 1.5 weeks to right and left side of head post left parotidectomy and neck dissection. Dental screening yesterday: 2 cracked teeth (they will work on and crown later)...and 3 impacted (no infection) widom teeth and one that erupted. He will be contacting rad onc doc today, but I wanted to get the forums opinion/experiences.
1. Should he have wisdom teeth removed?
2. How long will he have to wait for radiation/chemo then?
3. Is it OK to corwn later?
Thnaks for your help!
