Osteomyelitis (OM) is a bony inflammation of the maxillofacial skeleton with the participation of medullary and cortical bone, due to bacterial transgression. OM is described as the Suppurative type with pus/fistula/abscess/sequestration, where infectious agents materialize inconsistently, and the Non suppurative chronic inflammation of obscure aetiology. Conclusive criterion are i) narrative and clinical exposition. ii)imaging methodologies iii) culture specimens iv) histological assessment. Surgical objectives are necrotic debridement and conserving viable bone to expedite bone healing and bone defect rebuilding. Biodegradables employed are polylactic acid, polyglycolic acid, polyparadioxane polyesters, hydroxy apatite, bioceramics, polymers, ceramic composites calcium phosphates, fibrin sealed implants etc. Bisphosphonates are miraculous for pain relief in PCO, DSO, DSOM, even in long standing illness.
