Seeing many more elderly women on osteoclast blockers. Becoming more of an issue every year.
Seeing a large percentage of female patients in their 80s getting put on these meds, so a good review of the drugs that are now so popular.
Course excellent for explaining potential dental complications to female patients considering osteoporosis meds.
Thanks for update as we see more elderly women on these drugs.
