If your onj is not caused from radiation therapy nor from taking osteo/steroid or bisphoshonates meds or therapy, then what else could cause it?

In brief: Is it ONJ?

Onj defines a condition that the bone in the affected area does not heal and becoming necroses.
Inability for osteoclast function is the main reason. Any drug, disease condition or ailment that affecting osteoclast function will give you onj. Severe diabetic patient may develop localized infection in the area and causes necroses/delay healing. Biopsy for cancer. Laser biostimulation will help.

In brief: ONJ

The only two things i could think of would be a virulent strain of bacteria resistant to antibiotics or a compromised immune system. Risk factors also include include advanced age, steroid use, diabetes, gum disease and smoking.
