Paper Abstract

We developed a DentalSCOPE computer program to measure the bone mineral density (BMD) of the alveolar bone. Mineral density measurement of alveolar bone may be useful to predict possible patients who will occur medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). Because these osteoporosis medicines affect the mineral density of alveolar bone significantly. The BMD of alveolar bone was compared between dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) and the DentalSCOPE program. A high correlation coefficient was revealed between the DentalSCOPE measurement and the DEXA measurement.
