LAWRENCE, Kan., June 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Journal of Oral Implantology – Healthy bones undergo a process in which old bone is broken down and replaced with new bone. Conditions, such as osteoporosis, can cause an imbalance in this process and result in weak bones. Systemic medications can mitigate this imbalance; antiresorptive drugs increase bone strength by slowing bone turnover. Some data suggest that these drugs in combination with dental implants can increase a patient's risk for Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (MRONJ), a disease that interferes with the normal turnover of the jawbone and impedes a patient's quality of life. However, there is little understanding regarding MRONJ risk factors in these patients and whether they contribute to dental implant loss. A recent study in the current issue of the Journal of Oral Implantology examined publications to determine the risk of MRONJ and dental implant failure in patients on antiresorptive drugs.
