Treatment guidelines


Key points

  • Implant-based treatment in radiated bone is possible and often the preferred way to provide a functional restoration.
  • Doses above 55 Gy (Gray) interfere critically with osseointegration.
  • Adequate antibiotic therapy and eventually hyperbaric oxygen may prevent osteoradionecrosis.
  • Due to functional limitations, oral hygiene home care and need for checking cancer recurrences, consider removable prostheses/obturators.
