Treatments of patients taking Bisphosphonates

Information for bisphosphonate patients – risks at dental treatments

Your doctor (rheumatologist) is treating you with a highly-effective medicament from the group of bisphosphonates.

These are used in case of the following clinical pictures:

  • skeletal metastases
  • tumour-induced hypercalcaemia
  • osteoporosis
  • calcium metabolic disorders as hyperparathyroidism
  • Paget’s disease
  • pain therapy
Osteoporosis is always a risk event in dental treatments, especially in case of orthodontic (surgical) interventions and tooth extraction. This risk is increased by osteoporosis medicines, above all by bisphosphonate injections. They are able to cause bone injuries and jaw necrosis (bone loss) after the treatments.

The side-effect profile of bisphosphonates has been evaluated favourable for years, but since 2003 there has been an increase in the number of cases where a bisphosphonate therapy may have caused osteonecrosis (jawbone loss). There is a particularly high risk in case of such patients, who received/receive intravenous BP medication because of malignant primary disease.


The clinical picture begins with soft-tissue swelling in the oral cavity, tooth loosening or areas with exposed jawbones.

Our dental clinic is not able to carry out surgical procedures or tooth extractions for bisphosphonate-patients. That is a risk that we unfortunately cannot take. For patients concerned, who are before or during a bisphosphonate therapy, we recommend a thorough examination and treatment at the University Hospital Vienna (AKH).
