Even though visiting the dentist or your medical physician often includes exposure to radiation, many radiotherapy treatments and X-ray exams put strain on unprotected areas of your mouth and can have an extremely harmful effect on your health and your body. At Remington Family Dental, we utilize a radiation protection device to help block harmful radiation from your mouth and keep you healthy and safe.
Our skilled dentists create custom oral appliances to protect the soft oral tissues and other areas of the mouth from harmful radiation. We strongly encourage patients who are receiving radiation-heavy treatments, such as chemotherapy, to use this device. Many harmful oral conditions can develop as a result of radiation exposure, even when that exposure is focused away from the head and mouth. Our radiation protection device isolates the mouth by forming a barrier between it and harmful radiation particles.
As your teeth, soft oral tissues and supporting bone structure influence the health and wellbeing of your entire body, it is incredibly important that they be protected. Please take the steps necessary to safeguard your oral health by contact our office at 406-655-4210 and scheduling an appointment with Dr. Remington Townsend, Dr. Jacob Condon or Dr. Kenton Smith. During your visit, you can ask us about our radiation protection devices in Billings, Montana. We will be happy to provide you with more information and help you receive the treatments you need.
