S2EP6: Treatment Options for ONJ, Complications in Mandible Fractures, and Are Weekend Dental Emergencies a Hazard?
On this episode of Dentist Brain Candy, I cover two articles from the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery on the treatment of osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ). The first one delves into a new treatment option for medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw while the second one explores the risk factors involved in recurrence and treatment outcomes. Plus, I also share what I’ve found to be helpful for patients who present with dizziness when taking Pentoxifylline.
I also share a useful article from the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery about inflammatory complications from the management of mandible fractures and if there is a difference in occurrence based on whether the procedure was performed in an outpatient vs. inpatient setting.
And finally, the last article I discuss delves into the outcome of weekend vs. weekday treatment in odontogenic infection severity.
Listen, as I also continue our discussion of the book, Limitless by Jim Kwik and a closer look at how multitasking stunts growth.
