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 7: (A, B) Intraoral photographs after loading at 4 months (July 2015).

Mentions: In March 2015, after an osseointegration phase of five months, the implants were exposed and healing abutments were placed. The implants exhibited excellent stability and the implant supported fixed prosthesis was fabricated. Eighteen months after implant surgery and thirteen months after restoration of the implants, the peri-implant region remained stable.(Fig. 7)
