Abstract

Osteonecrosis of the jaw may be caused by radiation, medication, or infection. Optimal therapy requires a multimodal approach that combines surgery with adjuvant treatments. This review focuses on the use of adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy for this condition. In addition to evidence regarding the basic and clinical science behind hyperbaric oxygen therapy, controversies in the field and economic implications are discussed.
