Munich, 21 December 2020 – Starting in January 2021, a special consultation hour for jaw necrosis will be offered at MFACE. Every Tuesday and Friday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., patients can attend the free consultation hour at MFACE I Maxillofacial Center for the prevention or treatment of bisphosphonate-, drug- or radiation-associated necrosis of the jaw (BRONJ, MRONJ, ORN).
In osteonecrosis of the jaw, hard and soft tissue around the jaw dies. The main symptoms are exposed bone that cannot be treated and has not healed even after several weeks. Triggering factors may be irradiation in the head and neck region, the use of (monoclonal) antibodies or the use of bisphosphonates and a number of similar agents. Bisphosphonates are the treatment of choice for tumor patients with bone metastases and osteoporosis, but the side effects can be severe. Tumor patients in particular have to deal with drug-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ).
The Maxillary Necrosis Consultation at MFACE is for those patients who want to prevent possible side effects of bisphosphonate, drug or radiation therapy, detect them early or treat them effectively when they occur. If dental or oral surgery treatment is necessary, the medical experts at MFACE will work out an individually tailored plan with the treating dentist. Comprehensive care before, during and after drug treatment or radiation is thus guaranteed.
Registration or referral to the consultation is not necessary. However, if you would like to avoid waiting times, you are welcome to pre-register by phone at +49 (0)89 8292 44-44.
