Recently,there has been much concern about the bisphosphonate class of medication for osteoporosis such as Fosamax. These medications have been associated with osteonecrosis (non healing bone) following extractions, dental implants or invasive dental work. Although the risk of this is very low, it would be prudent for anyone going on bisphosponates to have a dental exam before treatment in case dental work needs to be done.
