Description

Over 4 million women in the Unites States are taking bisphosphonates and require dental treatment. Although dentists encounter these patients commonly, many are unsure of when treatment modifications are necessary to minimize morbidity. Newer anti-resorptive medications have entered the market and caused further confusion for dentists. This course is designed to educate the dental practitioner on the implications of bisphosphonates in their practice. Evidence-based recommendations are provided to allow clinicians to know when treatment modifications are necessary for dental treatment. Specific attention is given to situations when dentoalveolar surgery should be avoided entirely. Dr. Fayette Williams (toofache32) covers this important topic comprehensively.
