Abstract

Osteoradionecrosis is a severe debilitating complication; it may occur from radiotherapy to the bones. It is a dental surgeon's nightmare as it may be long standing and difficult to manage. Osteoradionecrosis is characterised by hypoxia, hypocellularity and hypovascularity of the affected tissue. This paper reviews osteoradionecrosis in relation to dental treatment.
