Özet

Objective: Bisphosphonates (BPs) are commonly prescribed drugs because of their antiresorptive effects. However, BPs may cause medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ). This study aimed to compare the maxillary sinus volumes and mucosal thickening of patients with MRONJ and healthy patients.
