I am undergoing chemotherapy (Carbo/abraxane+ Avastin) My platelets are currently low.
I have my wisdom teeth, TMJ, and grind my teeth. I have never had a cavity, but when my teeth aren't properly cleaned by a hygienist for awhile, I get either an infection or inflammation of the gums between my wisdom teeth and the back of my mouth. I am currently dealing with this problem.
I believe I have toris. No one has ever told me that, but I have bony, rounded protrusions on the inner sides of my bottom jaw. On one of these protrusions,a small (around 1/16th of an inch at most), sharp protrusion has broken free of my gums. The gums aren't sore there. I believe it may be bone because it is quite hard.
I have an appointment with my dentist in a couple days, but I am concerned. Could this be bone death or a more severe infection? What would my treatment options be until I finish chemo next month?
