What is the proper treatment for ONJ?
Unfortunately, there is no known cure for ONJ at this time. Long-term antibiotic therapy is often used to combat the infection commonly associated with ONJ, and surgical removal of dead and dying bone tissue has been employed. Some authorities suggest, however, that the surgical progress may exacerbate the condition rather than improve it.
