Introduction: The goal of Modern Dentistry is to restore normal comfort, function, aesthetics, phonation and health to the patient. It is estimated that the number of dental implants used in the United States has increased more than 10 times from 2002 to 2017. More than one million dental implants are performed each year in Brazil.

Objective: The objective of the present study was to describe the types of bisphosphonates and their relation with the incidence of Osteonecrosis, reviewing some important aspects of this pathology, reinforcing the therapeutic approach.

Methods: Experimental and clinical studies were included (case reports, retrospective, prospective and randomized trials) with qualitative and/or quantitative analysis. Mesh Terms: The words were included osteoporosis, bisphosphonates, efficacy and complications. For further specification, the "bisphosphonates" description for refinement was added during searches.

Conclusion: The use of bisphosphonate is an alternative for the reduction of loss and increase of bone density, including therapeutic and preventive measures, mainly in invasive practices such as dental implants.

Keywords: Osteoporosis; Bisphosphonates; Efficacy and Complications
