Fosamax Causing Osteonecrosis of the Jaw Lawsuits

No longer accepting these casesOsteonecrosis of the jaw is a serious condition associated with Fosamax use that cause the jaw bone to decay and die.

The risk of this complication occurring is greatly increased in patients who take Fosamax. Also known as Dead Jaw Syndrome, osteonecrosis of the jaw can become a problem after minor trauma to the jaw area, such as a visit to the dentist.

Tissue around the jaw will erode, and eventually blood flow to the area will be restricted and cut off. The lack of blood causes the bone to die, and eventually can collapse.

While the link between Fosamax and Osteonecrosis risk is still being studied, doctors who prescribe Fosamax to patients urge them to receive any necessary dental work prior to beginning the medication. If you or a loved one has suffered osteonecrosis of the jaw while taking Fosamax, you may have a case against the drug’s manufacturer.
