I've been on Zometa for over two years, without any need for dental work. Now my dentist says I need to have a fractured tooth caped and have a 3 tooth bridge replaced. My oncologist says that I need to go off zometa for 2 months before having anything done except cleaning my teeth. I asked my dentist to call the oncologist, but would guess they might not connect before my Tues. morning appointment to get zometa. My husband thinks I should go ahead with the zometa, and then if I need the dental work, wait 2 more months after that. He wants me to see if the cancer markers have gone up as I have had more pain from the bone mets which are extensive in my spine. Have any of you had experience with dental work that did not involve extractions. I kind of feel like there are no good choices here; but what is the least worst choice.
