    As I have read and advised you should not attempt to have to much dental work done. While going through chemo.

    Hi, I was taking A/C every other week then would take Taxol every other week. And had a abscessed tooth. It was actually a tooth that I had a root canal on 25 years ago and had it crowned. I at first was like , how can I have a tooth ache with a tooth that has no roots and is capped/crowned. I called my oncologist because my paper work said get all dental work cleared through oncologist. They said I could have exam, xrays etc, but no dental with without checking with oncologist. I just finished my last A/C treatment - I had to take meds for the tooth infection and could have dental work only the 3 days BEFORE my chemo. I was able to not skip a treatment. I had to get the tooth pulled ... Had it pulled on Tuesday and had Chemo on Thursday. Oncologist said as long as my blood work came back good , I will get the chemo. Hope this helps.
