scientific data, so that everyone can become a recipient of knowledge that we often neglect
to put into practice, in our daily life, in order to prevent damages and damages to
this very sensitive organ of the human body called the oral cavity.

of maxillofacial surgery of the G.P.N.P. Ms. Vassiliana Dendrinou Dentist,
member of the Board of Directors of the Dental Association and Mrs Velva Mitropoulou Dentist,
presented in detail the problems affecting the oral cavity not only of
of oncological patients undergoing treatment but also of every person in general and
focused on the points that need special attention, from the patients themselves
and their companions and from ordinary citizens.
Many times the negligence and lack of attention in the care of the oral cavity
shows in the foreground serious problems with costs primarily in health, but also in
finances of each family.
In summary, from the many that were mentioned, Mrs. Miranda Alexopoulou pointed out that the
oncological treatments with specific classes of drugs such as bisphosphonates,
antiangiogenic and antiosteolytic, it has been found that they may present oral
complications and specifically necrosis of the jaw bone mainly after operations e.g.
extraction of teeth. The timely notification of both patients receiving such drugs and
lifelong awareness of the physicians involved in the problem can reduce substantially

Prevention is the most important treatment. Detailed dental examination of patients
is necessary so that any blockages, endodontic treatments, gingivitis treatment or
periodontitis, extractions, to be done before starting treatment. The collaboration between him
treating physician and the dentist or maxillofacial surgeon in cases of operations on
patients taking these drugs is essential and can prevent progression
