Summary

Background: The first cases of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) were reported in 2003. Since then number of possible treatments have been proposed.

Case report: We report a case of a 50-year-old patient with bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ). The treatment included resection of necrotic bone and the application of plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF®-Endoret®). We closed the ulcer in the soft tissue and the treated bone was regenerated one year later. Finally the regenerated area was rehabilitated with dental implants.

Conclusion: Resection followed by PRGF® -Endoret® was successful in promoting closure of the wound and the recovery of nerve function.
