Biphosphonates-related osteonecrosis of the jaw is defined as an exposure of necrotic bone in maxillofacial region,which persists more than 8 weeks in patients treated or,in course of treatment whit biphosphonate, not been subjected to radiation therapy of the jaw . Biphosphonate compounds used to treat osteoporosis and malignant bone metastasis.despite yhe benefits related to the use of these medications ,osteonecrosis of the jaw is a significant complication in a subset of patients receiving these drugs. This complication occurs either spontaneously or after a simple dento-alveolar surgery.
