Implant treatment of macroglossia and edentulous mandible following radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal cancer: A case report
Chu, Frederick C. S. / Wong, Wan K. / Wong, Yiu K. / Chow, Ben K. C. / Cheng, Jason C. F.
Radiotherapy for the nasopharyngeal cancer patient with poor oral care may lead to severe deterioration of the dentition and may require multiple extractions. Although the use of an implant-retained overdenture can successfully restore the function and esthetics of edentulous patients, its use can be complicated by the tissue changes subsequent to head and neck irradiation. The difficulties in implant treatment planning for an edentulous patient with macroglossia and soft tissue changes following radiotherapy are discussed.
