If you have already suffered from the effects of oral cancer, it’s extremely important to seek out a dentist who has specialized training in the treatment of cancer patients. What I do as a Maxillofacial Prosthodontist or Dental Oncologist is make special prosthetics for people who may have lost, not only teeth, but some of their jaw bone as well. We can make special appliances that can help people that are having trouble with their speech, with chewing, or with swallowing. Those are all things that can be done.
Dr. Ronald Koslowski, DDS FACP is a Board Certified Prosthodontist and Dental Oncologist who practices in Encino, California. Dr. Koslowski is the author of “Take Back the Smile That Cancer Stole: The Cancer Patients Guide to Better Dental Health”, which is free to cancer patients and survivors who call our office to request a copy at 818-986-9036.
