More than 10 years ago, bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis was described for the first time, opening a new research field describing epidemiologic and patho-etiologic data, as well as prevention, diagnostic, and therapy regimes for this new disease. In 2006, more than 150 articles on this topic were published, and since 2009 more than 200 new articles have been listed in PubMed each year, showing the progress of research in this area. In recent years, new active ingredients have been developed and implemented into anti-cancer and osteoporosis therapy, such as RankL inhibitors and tyrosine kinase inhibitors, which lead to osteonecrosis as well.
This Special Issue is interested in all aspects of all dental specialties dealing with this topic. In addition to basic research regarding pathology, prevention, and treatment, clinical topics are of interest. How is dental treatment affected by anti-resorptive therapies, e.g., surgical procedures (tooth extractions, implantology, etc.), periodontal, orthodontic, or endodontic treatment?
