About the Treatment
The process of receiving a bone marrow transplant can cause anemia, bleeding and a lowered immune system. The oral cavity, which harbors many microorganisms, can be a site of complication from transplantation. Our general dentists have special training and expertise in preparing patients for bone marrow transplants and in managing the oral complications during and after patients' medical treatment. They work closely with Massachusetts General Hospital's oncologists in caring for transplant patients.
About the Division of Dentistry
The Massachusetts General Hospital Division of Dentistry is a hospital-based group practice containing multiple dental specialists under one roof. Like traditional dental practices, we are open to the public and provide all aspects of preventive, therapeutic and restorative dental care.
