As I have been taking Alendronate 70MG (once per week) for several years, my dentist has refused to perform any dental extractions.

I have a tooth which I believe may require removal in the not too distant future, but am concerned that the dentist will not extract it.

I note from your website that you recommend a possible cessation of taking this medication for a period if this type of dental work is necessary. Could you advise what length of time would be appropriate.

Your kind reply would be greatly appreciated.
