Fosamax Causing Jaw Injuries

No longer accepting these casesInjuries to the jaw bone have been frequently associated with Fosamax use. Jaw bone fractures, death, infection, pain, and exposed bone have all been reported by users of the drug.

In some cases, patients have required tooth extractions because the jaw could no longer support their teeth. Additionally, patients who have had their teeth extracted due to this complication are usually not good candidates for dental implants due to the lack of supporting bone mass. Therefore, these individuals often require extensive, and expensive, bone grafting surgery.

Since the risk of jaw injuries while using Fosamax is increased, Doctors who prescribe the drug recommend any necessary dental work be preformed prior to beginning the medication. Lawsuits are currently being filed against Merck, the makers of Fosamax, for failure to produce a safe and effective medication.

Some lawsuits have already been settled for substantial amounts. If you or a loved one has suffered jaw injuries such as osteonecrosis of the jaw, or bone fracture as a result of taking Fosamax, you may have a cause against the drug company.
