Abstract

62 year old male patient was referred for the expert management of painful and exposed necrotic bone in the right lower posterior region since 3 months. The patient revealed that his last standing tooth on the right lower jaw was extracted by the family dentist, 3 months prior to the referral. However, the patient’s medical history divulged details on biopsy proven squamous cell carcinoma of oropharynx, 3 years earlier and subsequent 60 cgy external beam radiation for the same. Intraoral examination revealed a non-healing socket with exposed necrotic bone and no evidence of purulent discharge
