The risk factors for the development of ORN includes dose or radiation (> 50-60Gy), radiation area, patients with poor oral hygiene, recent dental extraction, malnutrition, immuno compromised status. The management of osteoradionecrosis varies from more conservative approach to the aggressive treatment modalities.
