PMID:  16872925     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Osteonecrosis of the jaws following the use of bisphosphonate drugs has been reported in the literature. Presently, there is limited evidence to establish guidelines for the prosthodontic management of patients with active osteonecrosis, a history of osteonecrosis, or medical history of using these medications. This clinical report reviews the current literature regarding bisphosphonate use, and reports the prosthodontic treatment of an edentulous patient with active osteonecrosis who had a history of oral bisphosphonate use and jaw irradiation.
