Yes, reports of bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw (bone loss in the jaw) following tooth extraction started to emerge in 2003.
These patients were typically cancer patients receiving high doses of biphosphonates intravenously.
Rarely cases have been reported in patients receiving oral Fosamax.
