This is a good informative article. It's good to know that one can preserve one's teeth from falling out as we age simply by ensuring that we not only follow good dental hygiene but get proper treatment to protect our bones from osteoporosis as well. http://fosamaxclassactionattorneys.webnode.co...

"Although this may sound good news, the public may need to be aware that Fosamax, one of the osteoporosis drugs, can potentially cause unusual femur fractures, esophageal cancer and atrial fibrillation. Another side effect of Fosamax has been linked to a risk of osteonecrosis of the jaw and lawsuits are being pursued against the drug’s manufacturer for failing to adequately warn about the problems.

I read this story a few weeks ago and thought that it was interesting. Some osteoporosis treatment (bisphosphonates) has been known to cause osteonecrosis of the jaw from what I've read on this site: http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/case-against... . But I guess that is not the case with all known osteoporosis medication.
