Bone health and maintenance of bone integrity are important concerns during comprehensive cancer care and management of osteoporosis. Bisphosphonates (BPs) are widely used for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and skeletal complications associated with metastatic cancer and multiple myeloma.
We can anticipate greater concerns related to oral health and antiresorptive therapy based on reports that characterize the efficacy of these drugs for metastatic disease and osteoporosis, the expanded use of BPs as preventive therapy, the increased life expectancy of patients who use these drugs and recent evidence of osteonecrosis not related to bisphosphonate medications.
The growing incidence of ONJ cases highlights the importance of interdisciplinary management for dentists and physicians. Although the occurrence of ONJ is considered rare, it may have a broad health impact and has created numerous dilemmas in patient management among oncologists, endocrinologists, rheumatologists and dentists. Clinicians should be aware of paradigm shifts that are developing in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, risk assessment, prevention and treatment of ONJ.
