Am on another osteoporois drug and read in instructions to let my Dentist know. He'd just read an article that found this other drug causes problems with dental jaw surgery, tooth extractions, and to a lesser degree, root canals. Dental patients are left with permanently exposed bone and pain. Doctors do not know of this and dentists are just finding out. Was on Actonel and did not see anything in their directions about telling your dentist. Does anyone know if Actonel causes the same problems with dental procedures?

The current Time magazine (Mar 20) has an article on page 121 says "...dentists and oral surgeons have begun to warn of a more serious problem in a subgroup of patients -necrosis (death) of the jawbone." Dr Andrew Weil is the author and there is a web address of time.com/askdrweil "if you have a question for Dr Weil". I was just trying to find more info on the web when I came accross your comments.

Could Dr Weil advise me on the effective of Greens+ and of Mangosteen juice which is sold as Xango.
I am anxious to find a food supplement which will give me more energy and zest for life. If you have any suggestions for other more effective supplements I would be happy to receive them.
Thank you.

This is good since it can be considered as a good benefit. However, we must also be aware about http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com/fo... .

As far as I know most bisphosphonate medications actually cause jaw problems, so I would be very careful about taking them and scheduling any invasive dental procedure. http://www.fosamaxclassactionlawsuit.com

Indeed, osteoporosis drugs have several benefits especially to patients who have higher risk of fractures than others. Although the risk of side effects may still be imminent. Bisphosponates such as Fosamax, while it has held much promise, has also been linked to femur fractures. http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com may have more information for people concerned and interested.

Considering recent findings presented at the first Oral-systemic health conference in Baltimore, Maryland, any drug that can be used to treat periodontal disease as well as bone loss would also be essential to preventing other diseases that might follow. It is important however that any patient taking this drug also consider the side-effects of the drug and see if they can tolerate the medication well. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/onj/
