Dental implant treatment after healing of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) in the same region: a case report.

Kim JW, Baik J, Jeon JH - J Korean Assoc Oral Maxillofac Surg (2016)

Bottom Line: Although pathophysiology, incidence, and factors associated with the development of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) and management strategies for patients treated with bisphosphonates or patients with BRONJ are well-established, few guidelines or recommendations are available for patients with a history of successfully healed BRONJ.We present a case of successful dental implant treatment after healing of BRONJ in the same region of the jaw, and speculate that implant placement is possible after healing of BRONJ surgery in select cases.

Figure 3: Implant removal and conventional bridge prosthesis was rehabilitated.

Mentions: In May 2013, we diagnosed the patient with BRONJ and decided to remove the necrotic bone and implants. A sequestrectomy was performed at the left upper canine and first premolar area and the two implants were removed.(Fig. 2) After surgery, mucosal healing without any necrotic bone was achieved and a conventional fixed dental prosthesis was fabricated.(Fig. 3)
