My mother has completed taking forteo for two years that resulted in no bone growth. After this last treatment she was placed on prolia. She has completed two treatments. Her jaw dislocates while eating or brushing her teeth. Sometimes it dislocates while she is just watching t.v. Because she has had many incidents, she is very careful in opening her mouth in any situation. These incidents happen as frequent as 1-3 times a week. Her dentist is no help.
I can relate to you mom I had the same problem, I took prolia and stopped when it started and there was no change in bones, I think all bone med's make them hard and they will break like a tooth pick, I had all kinds of side effects joint pains all the time, in answer to your question jaw problems is a side effect to the bone med's, my Dentist just made me a mouth piece to wear at night this has been helpful to me, you have to wear it every night, also I had it called to start with TMJ, got different answers from each Doctor I saw, good luck to your mother with this wish I could be of more help.
I have on Prolia for several years and started having trouble with my jaw clicking. I mentioned it to the doctor who said the shot could be causing it. My gums also became infected and I got more cavities. I stopped the shot and the guns are better but I still need to see a dentist for jaw and cavities just dont know how I'm going to pay. Seems like this should be covered under medical.
Look at some of the other responses to Prolia questions and you will that it causes a lot of very serious problems. My side effects aren't so serious, but they have had a significant impact on my life. After just one injection of Prolia 6 years ago, my bones get bruised from any pressure. I was able to wear my CPAP mask all night long, but after the Prolia, the mask leaves bad bruising from just wearing it a couple hours. I need the CPAP for very severe sleep apnea. I have to take pillows to restaurants and out socially to sit on or my bun bones get bruised. Also my skin is so sensitive that petting my cats is like fiberglass. Cannot even wear wool blends. Most women will probably not have bad side effects, but the ones that do, it can be terrible. It can happen after just one injection or years of them. IT'S NOT WORTH IT.
