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 6: Panoramic radiograph after re-implantation.

Mentions: The patient was specifically informed about the risk of reoccurrence of BRONJ and was asked to sign a written document of informed consent. In October 2014, three implants (US II SA, 4×10 mm; Osstem, Seoul, Korea) were placed, replacing the left upper lateral incisor, canine, and first premolar.( Fig. 6) An oral prophylactic antibiotic (amoxicillin with clavulanic acid) was prescribed for seven days. The implant site was prepared with the standard protocol for submerged implants.
