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 4: Intraoral photograph of the necrotic bone exposure in the upper left molar area.

Mentions: In August 2013, the patient complained of pain and gingival swelling in the left upper first molar region. The same initial treatment that was administered for the first episode was given here in terms of antibiotics and oral hygiene care, but necrotic bone around the first molar implant was eventually exposed.(Fig. 4)
