Oral Health and Bisphosphonates – patient information to assist informed consent 

This ADA patient education pamphlet provides dental information on the impact of bisphosphonate medication on oral health. Bisphosphonates are discussed for patients needing medication for certain medical conditions, such as osteoporosis, Paget’s disease of the bone and cancers involving bone. Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) is discussed as a rare but serious complication of taking a bisphosphonate. 

This leaflet can be a useful tool for patients taking a bisphosphonate as the risk of developing ONJ after dental treatment is discussed in detail. Previous dental treatments that can increase the patient’s risk of developing ONJ are also discussed, such as dental implants, tooth extraction and gum (periodontal) disease.

Mi-tec publishes 31 Australian Dental Association patient information brochures. The dental information is written in plain English to assist the patients’ understanding of health information and to help patients make informed decisions. The ADA patient information brochures are printed in five-colour on high-quality A4 sheets.
