We provide a specialist dental oncology service for patients who have been treated for head & neck cancer in Merseyside. Dental breakdown following radiotherapy is not uncommon and is often distressing for patients & dental surgeons trying to manage them. We provide advice to primary care practitioners as well as active treatment within our unit. We provide specialist knowledge and treatment planning skills especially when planning for extractions following radiotherapy.
We actively recruit patients to the HOPON randomised clinical trial (Hyperbaric Oxygen for the Prevention of OsteoradioNecrosis)
