Orthod Fr. 2022 Dec 01; 93(4):333-351.
PMID: 36718755.


Bisphosphonates are mainly used in the treatment of osteoporosis and in oncology. They bind to bone and inhibit the action of osteoclasts, leading to a decrease in bone remodeling and thus hindering tooth movement. The main objective was to present, through a review of the literature, the indications and therapeutic modalities for orthodontic treatment of patients who are or have been treated with bisphosphonates. The second objective was to propose a decisional organization chart for medical care.
