osteomylitis and bone disease?

Q. Will contracting osteomylitis aged 8 years increase my chances of bone disease re occurring

A. Dear M,
This is difficult question and one that I have to admit I do not know the answer to. If the osteomylitis left less bone in the area it occurred in your mouth then if you did get gum disease in that area the effect of bone loss from the gum disease would be more profound.

Sorry I cannot be of more help.
