Painful trigeminal neuropathy induced by oral bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw: A new etiology for the numb-chin syndrome
Zadik, Yehuda / Benoliel, Rafael / Fleissig, Yoram / Casap, Nardy
We describe the management of BRONJ triggered by dental implants in a patient on oral bisphosphonates. The sequestrum in the body of the mandible was large and involved the inferior alveolar nerve, causing a painful neuropathy. A successful outcome was obtained by combining conservative and surgical interventions.
