* In adults, extract nonrestorable teeth that may pose a future problem to prevent later extraction-induced osteoradionecrosis
Por lo cual se decidio realizar las extracciones tres semanas antes de iniciar su radioterapia para evitar el riesgo de generar una osteoradionecrosis
[sup] Xerostomia, pain, burning sensation, dysphagia, slurred speech, and related symptoms can cause discomfort, while accelerated dental caries may contribute to more serious complications such as osteoradionecrosis
. [sup], During the last decade there has been increasing interest in the prevention of RT-induced severe mucositis.
A simple device to protect against osteoradionecrosis
induced by interstitial irradiation.
In addition, previous studies have shown that titanium can cause a backscatter effect, which may increase the risk of local overdoses around the plate and contribute to screw loosening, osteoradionecrosis
, and wound breakdown [17, 18].
In fact, osteoradionecrosis
(ORN) is not a common complication of radiotherapy, and the incidence in the literature has been reported to range from 1% to 37.5% .
of bones within the radiation field (most commonly the mandible) may occur as a result of damage to the bone vasculature and osteocytes and is one of the most serious complications of radiotherapy .
Misdiagnosis may include alveolar osteitis, osteomyelitis and osteoradionecrosis
, and symptoms may mimic sinusitis, gingivitis/periodontitis, periapical pathology and temporomandibular joint disorder.
