Abstract

Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is a severe adverse reaction of bisphoshonate (BPs) treatment, that can si- gnificantly affect the quality of life of cancer patients.Main aims of the ONJ treatments is to reduce pain, to control infection and to slow the progression of the disea- se or, when it is achievable, to have a complete healing, eradicating the necrotic bone and, so, the infection. Ac- cording to AAOMS guidelines, symptomatic patients with stage III disease may require resection and immediate reconstruction with plates or obturator. However, recently, the tendency is to treat by conservative surgery all ONJ stages, expecially when the patients is not suitable for major surgery; because it has been found to provide resolution of acute infection and to offer long-term well-being for patients.We report the management of a case of a mandibular stage III ONJ, treated with conservative surgery.
