MARTINEZ-RODRIGUEZ, N. et al. Extraction in geriatric patients with phosphonates. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.3, pp.173-179. ISSN 2340-3152.

In geriatric patients is common the presence of systemic diseases, leading to a use of various drugs for the treatment thereof. One of the most common are the bisphosphonates. In general, bisphosphonates are well tolerated drugs if properly managed, although in recent years have also been described different adverse effects associated with its consumption, with the maxillary osteonecrosis one of the most important. Since then are numerous reported cases in which it is stated that minor surgical procedures such as extractions could be one of the triggers. In the case of intravenous bisphosphonates, since the risk is much higher, it is suggested to avoid possible oral surgical treatments like extractions while on treatment with oral bisphosphonates may not contraindicate such treatments that so categorically. In this situation the need to establish a definitive protocols aimed at the prevention and treatment of this possible complication that could happen is obvious.
