Should I see a dentist when I have cancer?

Woman staring out windowIt is very important to keep seeing your dentist when you are diagnosed with cancer.  Many oncologists want cancer patients assessed prior to cancer treatment to make sure there are no infections or abscesses.  If a tooth needs to be removed after cancer treatment, it can cause issues including osteonecrosis (a bone infection), so it is important to assess these issues prior to treatment.  In addition, many cancer treatments can contribute to a dry mouth (lack of sufficient saliva) which can lead to cavities.
