The primary symptoms above may or may not be present. Some cases of osteonecrosis present as nonhealing wounds without any signs of redness, pain, or inflammation. SOmetimes the only sign is exposed (often opaque and marbleized) bone. THese areas must be watched with management per guidelines as established by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons for various stages.
