Oxygen Therapy is proven to help with maxillofacial wound healing. An example of this is for osteoradionecrosis occuring after radiotherapy for cancers in the head and neck. Although Oxygen Therapy cannot restore dead bone, it can encourage blood vessels to grow in the tissues around the area.
If you’re a maxillofacial patient, you can be referred by your maxillofacial consultant to have your treatment funded by the NHS. You can also refer yourself and fund treatment yourself. Find out more about having Oxygen Therapy.
