This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of MRONJ in patients treated with prosthetic implant rehabilitation. We evaluated the risk of MRONJ genesis comparing implant surgery with the development of necrosis after correct implant osteointegration. The implants' presence in these patients is a possible risk factor of necrosis development. The presence of implant might cause a reactivation of osteoclasts.
