Rick woke up a few days ago with an infection on his back tooth. He has always been very maticulas about flossing twice a day and brushing 2 to 3 times a day. He goes in for cleanings every 6 months and is always complemented on his dental hygene. When he had an infection we called and got in the next day. They found that a tooth that had a root canal and a cap was the one causing the problem. They showed us x-rays from 6 months ago verses now and you can clearly see where the bone is wearing down, not only on that tooth but other teeth around it. There is a big gap between his gum and the crown that was not there before. I mentioned to the dentist that Rick had prostate cancer. He sent us on to a specialist and said we should look into this further as it could be related. Have any of you heard of prostate cancer popping up in the Gums?????
