Abstract

Bisphosphonate effects on the skeleton have been studied in the context of a broad range of disciplines, including endocrinology, orthopedics, oncology, and dentistry. The emergence of osteonecrosis of the jaw as a rare but serious side effect of bisphosphonate treatment has stimulated interest in understanding how this drug class affects the oral skeleton. This review focuses on recent work describing how bisphosphonates affect bone remodeling, tissue properties, and postsurgical healing in the oral cavity.
