Abstract
Objectives: This study was carried out to evaluate the efficacy of alendronic acid / colcalciferol plus Calcium in management of edentulous patients with a severe bilateral resorption of the mandible. Materials and methods: Twenty edentulous patients with severely resorbed mandibles have been managed by alendronic acid / colcalciferol plus Calcium tablets. They were followed-up clinically and radiologically for one year. Results: The results were promising for nineteen patients (95%) where the radiographic density and height of the bone have been improved. However, the treatment was unsuccessful for one patient who was elder, 89 years old, than the others. Conclusions: On the basis of our findings, we encourage the use of alendronic acid / colcalciferol plus calcium in management of mandibular osteolysis particularly in young age.
