How is Fosamax® associated with ONJ?
Studies indicate that Fosamax® can inhibit and restrict blood flow to bone tissue so that minor trauma to the jaw, such as tooth extractions, do not heal properly (and at some point, the jaw bone can actually become exposed). Not only can the resulting complications be very painful, dead bone tissue is not reversible.
