I have both & was just taken off Fosamax by my MD for taking it over 7 yrs. My DDS tells me I have 4 teeth that have to be pulled. But says because I took meds for Osteoporsis they can't pull teeth for 10 yrs. She called oral surgeons in our area & that's what they told her. Now she says I still should have teeth pulled but by an oral surgeon only... She first said I can't have teeth pulled for 10 yrs after discussing w/oral surgeons now she says she still wants them pulled but would not do herslef because there coudl be a severe infection... What are the newest facts on this?View Thread
