Details

Dental Considerations for Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (MRONJ), First Edition provides a comprehensive review on MRONJ epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical features, and diagnosis. In addition, it discusses detailed, up-to-date management protocols for patients with this fairly new condition. Considering the rapid increase in MRONJ prevalence, this book provides key information for dental practitioners and detailed dental considerations for almost every dental specialty to be applied upon an encounter with patients at risk or with MRONJ. It also provides guidelines for safe dental procedures to be delivered to MRONJ patients, and potential risks associated with more invasive procedures. In addition, it includes practical tips and procedures for application in both hospital and ambulatory settings.

This book contains over 30 illustrations and images with 15 tables of clinical relevance as a handy reference and simplified application for daily practice. Dental practitioners engaged in the care of MRONJ patients are faced with questions on this condition’s nature, treatment, and long-term prognosis on a regular basis. Therefore, this book contains a dedicated section for common Q&A in a simplified language to be shared with MRONJ patients and their families. Dental Considerations for Medication-Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (MRONJ), First Edition is considered one of few references on MRONJ, and a must-have resource for every dental student, resident, and dental provider to ensure standards of care for all dental services provided to this category of patients.
