KR. Micheletti*, L. Hernandes, GF. Cerqueira, M. Salazar, AC. Zeffa, JBL. Silva, AL. Ramos
Oral bone loss originating from osteoporosis is a great problem for dentists. Total or partial tooth loss is greater in patients suffering from systemic osteoporosis than in patients without this condition. The quantity and quality of the maxillary and mandibular bone is important for treatment planning, especially in the areas that require bone quality for a successful treatment outcome such as in orthodontics, periodontics and implantology.
