BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the distribution of the intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) dose delivered to the teeth, maxilla, and mandible. METHODS The mean dose (Dmean) and maximum dose (Dmax) of radiation for the maxilla, mandible, and teeth of 63 patients with oropharyngeal (n = 44) or nasopharyngeal (n = 19) tumors were(More)
AIM The aim of this study is to present a literature review on the effects of the ionizing radiation from radiotherapy treatment on dental tissues.

One of the important treatment(More)
BACKGROUND Radiotherapy (RT) is frequently used in the treatment of head and neck cancer, but different side-effects are frequently reported, including a higher frequency of radiation-related caries, what may be consequence of direct radiation to dental tissue. The intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) was developed to improve tumor control and decrease(More)
