Hello everyone, long time no see!
I have a question for you all regarding hyperbaric treatments relating to dental extractions - given the time involved, loss of hours at work, cost, potential for short-term and long-term visual adverse effects, especially in my own case... (It will "ripen" my radiation-induced cataracts, and exacerbate issues I have with retinal hemorrhage, which has already taken the central vision of one eye)
if it turns out that I need hyperbaric treatment for the extraction of a single tooth, should I have them all removed? Or, perhaps, just remove all from my lower jaw, where the blood flow is most intensely compromised and the need greatest? I have concerns about coming successfully through the process for a single tooth, and then six months or a year down the road, having another tooth fail, and needing to do it all again. Anyone with relevant experience? Ideas? Thanks.
