I have noticed that I Bruise easily. Does anyone else have this? I never did before. Wondering. confused

Pitting of teeth due to Radiation. Can the teeth be sealed with a sealent? To help block tooth decay? I would like to keep my teeth in good shape. I use all the Biotene prodocts.

I just got new glasses and I could see my teeth better & I was shocked to see all the pitting! smile

Take care
Diane

Radiation is hard on the teeth and gums. The best preventative is regular, at home, flouride treatments. I see a dental hygenist 3-4 times a year as well.

The bruising may be an indication of your blood counts being off. I would ask the MO about that one.

Thanks Gary,

Hummm, Never thought about blood counts being off at this point after treatment. I think they are OK.

Thanks again
Diane
