Have there been any problems with loosening of teeth. My teeth are healthy and strong and I want to keep them.
I found this side effect that might be the cause of you loosing you teeth:
Hypocalcemia - low calcium level in the blood. Your doctor may have a work-around or put you on a different type of medicine. Slightly lower calcium levels due to alendronate usually poses no problem, but patients who are vitamin D-deficient can get hypocalcemia. Patients taking alendronate should receive at least 1000 mg of elemental calcium and 800 IU of vitamin D per day unless they have hypercalcemia.
Advice contact your Doctor ASAP , You also may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
Good luck... from a caring individual
