bisphosphonate associated osteonecrosis

Does anyone have experience treating osteonecrosis of the mandible associated with bisphosphonates? Some research suggests it might be beneficial. 

Thanks in advance,

Rosemary

Bisphosphonate

The literature has mixed reviews and the insurance is not on board but I have been able to treat some patients with bisphosphatase who had chronic osteomyelitis at the site.  I was pleased to see significant improvement  with HBOT and debridement by oral surgeon.

 

Just some thoughts.

 

Thanks Vince
