Although every brachytherapy procedure is individualized, similar factors must be considered for each patient. Dental prostheses with modification may be useful in brachytherapy for managing selected patients with malignancies of the oral cavity. The prosthesis described in this article allowed an irregular surface to be treated with a relatively uniform radiation dose, while minimizing radiation exposure to uninvolved tissues and medical personnel. Whereas uniformity of dose is usually desirable in brachytherapy, it assumed even greater importance for this patient because of previous RT.
