Dental Implants with Bonegrafting/membrane

Dear Dr. Tsang:  About 2 years ago, I had to have an implant with bone grafting etc. done on a front tooth (eye tooth, left side) due to rupturing of root.  Had a root canal done on the same tooth about 7 years ago prior to the implant.  Now, after having a root canal done on another front tooth (eye tooth on right side) this being about 3 years ago, it also had to have an implant with bone grafting/membrane as it loosened.  I am a 74 year old female and am in basically good health.  I have taken FOSAMAX medication for over 4-5 years for treating Osteopenia.  Do you think that this medication might have something to do with my teeth loosening?  Seems too much of a coincidence to me since this has happened in only a two year span.  As matter of fact, both teeth bled while brushing/flossing (gently done).  I did not have any gum problem, just that the part of the gum was a little reddish with some swelling. I have stopped using the FOSAMAX for about 5 months now, thinking that this bone medication might be a factor here.  I am thanking you in advance for any information you can forward to me.
