The Prevention and Management of Medication Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw: Two Cases
Today, we bring you two interesting complex cases that were treated by Dr. Erin Watson, general dentist practicing out of Princess Margaret Cancer Center, and Dr. Irwin Golosky, Endodontist in Toronto.
Both cases deal with patients who are at higher risk for medication related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). Educational information is also presented to frame the situation and provide relevance to the general dentist. In cases where it is possible to prevent MRONJ, treatment is somewhat straightforward. However, in other cases where there is already a risk of MRONJ, treatment is challenging and requires the tight collaboration of a good oral health team, in order to appropriately address the patient’s needs.
I hope you find the information and the cases valuable. Please share your feedback, suggestions and questions with us through firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time!
