Hi! I have/had DLBCL and had 6 treatments of RCHOP. I have soft teeth and I've had some dental issues recently and been told it's from the chemo. I had to have a tooth pulled because of the root and two other root issues I had to have fixed. However, I am very blessed for my remission and the chemo. Teeth can be fixed. The chemo and God saved my life! I hope you have a good day! Kelly

My husband has DLBC lymphoma and we have not heard of problems with teeth. You do need to be very carful with good oral hygiene (salt water rinses after each meal and brushing with very soft bristle brush).

I’ve been treating for 5 yrs now with Rituxan and bendamustine. I’ve had 4 molars pulled. A year later I have more teeth problems going on. Seems like the molars are the most affected. Always had good teeth before this.
