Dental Oncology, Glenview IL
Oral pathology is a branch of dentistry concerned with oral cancer and other pathologies. We consult with patients who are concerned about suspicious oral lesions. We read slides from biopsies and report on results from tissue biopsies. An oral pathologist works closely with our staff. During cancer treatment, you may see a prosthodontist who can make interim prostheses for you. Dr. Jeon can also help plan the bite reconstruction when cancer treatments are finished. Pre-Screening for Cancer Treatment We also recommend head and neck cancer patients be screened before radiation treatment to determine the health of their jaws. In this way, we can recommend precautions to take when radiating the jawbones, so patients do not develop osteonecrosis.
