Oral Health Management of Patients Prescribed Anti-resorptive or Anti-angiogenic Drugs
The consultation on draft guidance Oral Health Management of Patients Prescribed Anti-resorptive or Anti-angiogenic Drugs is now closed. Thank you to all who contributed to this process.
The guidance, which is an update to the 2011 SDCEP publication Oral Health Management of Patients Prescribed Bisphosphonates and includes new advice on the wider range of drugs implicated in medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ), will be published in due course.
The aim of the updated guidance is to provide clear and practical advice for dentists in primary care on how to provide care for patients prescribed these drugs. The guidance will also be of relevance to prescribers and dispensers of the drugs and to patients.
