Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw: What's New and What Can You Do?

An updated review of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw
(MRONJ), including current understanding of disease pathogenesis
and associated co-morbidities. The risks and benefits of newer
anti-resorptive medications and drug protocols will be presented.
Latest guidelines for patient assessment, disease prevention and
management strategies will be discussed in the clinical setting of
cancer patient populations as well as in osteoporosis patients.
The course will review guidelines for assessment and dental treatment
of patients at risk for MRONJ in the setting of cancer, osteoporosis
or both; review current evidence regarding routine dental treatment
options, including implants, in patients using anti-resorptive medications
for osteoporosis; and discuss non-surgical and surgical treatment
