tx: 35 radiation tmnts
tx: total laryngectomy 2/28/12
i've been reading "more dental stuff" and getting more scared the more i read. my teeth have all moved and i bite my tounge EVERYTIME i eat. plus i have a sore on my gum and my mouth is pretty sore. due to these problems i went to the dentist yesterday expecting him to say i needed braces but instead he said i needed to have my bottom teeth pulled by an oral surgeon. they also mentioned the sore on the gum may be oral cancer. i see the surgeon this thursday and i'm wondering what questions i should ask.
one i know of is should i have hbo trmnts before the surgery.
also wondering if anyone had a sore on their gum that turned out to b cancer.
has anyone been told to get teeth pulled but didn't? if so, have there been any more problems with the teeth?
do u know how to find a dentist that deals with h&n c?
will medicare pay for the extractions?
how can teeth go so bad in a 6 month time frame?
i would appreciate any info u can provide. thank u n advance.
