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 5: Panoramic radiograph (A) and intraoral photograph (B) before re-implantation (October 2014).

Mentions: In April 2014, the left upper first molar implant and the left upper second premolar tooth with necrotic bone were removed.(Fig. 5) After healing, the patient wore a removable partial denture, but after a period of time, she could not adapt to the removable prosthesis and strongly desired dental implants to restore her edentulous area again.
