Medical Update for Dentistry: From Bisphosphonates to Blood Thinners

Practitioners must deal with an expanding array of patients with medical issues as the population ages. When practitioners think they understand procedure, the rules are changed. BRONJ (bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw) is now MRONJ (medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw). Total joint replacement patients no longer need premedication. Patients on Coumadin and other blood thinners do not always need to stop medications prior to dental treatment. Examine these issues and begin to understand the science behind the current management protocols.
