A cavitation can occur in the area of extraction, specifically wisdom tooth that is not healed well and forms an abnormal jaw bone. It is also called “Ischemic Bone Disease” or “Chronic Ischemic Jawbone Disease” which means that chronic infection grows in the maxillary or mandibular bone and it is related to the impaired blood flow. These pathological changes are the combination of the systemic and oral factors.

How is dental cavitation diagnosed?
Dental cavitation will be diagnosed with 3D Cone beam Scan plus experienced radiologist and surgeon/holistic dentist. The scan is the only tool that properly helps to observe changes in the bone density fluctuations, tissue changes, and adjacent anomalies cross-sectionally millimeter by millimeter of the infected area. It is important that the procedure is performed by an experienced holistic dentist.
Why does dental cavitation develop?
The simplest way to form the cavitation is bacteria and tissue death. When the immune system can’t properly handle bacteria, bacteria will colonize and feast on existing cellular structure which blocks the blood supply surrounding the bone and will cause it to destroy the bone.
Where does the bacteria come from?
Tooth Extractions (Bacteria): After the extraction, bacteria won’t neutralize around the suture area; however, bacteria multiply and incubate for years. They will cause to release toxic infection residue, so they are the host for the jaw and other parts of the body health issue.
Tooth Extractions (Periodontal Ligament): In general, periodontal ligament provides serum and blood to the tooth. Thus, when the tooth is extracted, periodontal ligament dies and resorbs. When the periodontal ligament is not removed/cleaned properly along with the tooth during extraction, it will cause to create an abnormal tissue and develop bacteria. Further, it will cause chronic health issues.
Root canal infections: The root canaled tooth counts as a dead appendage due to the lack of blood supply. Underneath the root canaled teeth, there is a possibility to form secondary infections, but it depends on the immune system countered by oxidative stress on the cells. When there is no dynamic pain, it is dangerous because until individual feels the pain, there could be a massive area filled with the infection. In addition, infection can move vertically into the bone and still individual not experience any discomfort.
Overuse of poorly chosen local anesthetic (Ischemia): It is important to know that Epinephrine is vasoconstrictor which reduces blood supply and no oxygen delivers to the cells or “ischemia”. On the other hand, Lidocaine is epinephrine free, but forms toxic byproducts. Thus, this local anesthetic avoided by the biological dentists. In natural and biological dentistry, half-life anesthetics like Carbocaine which is epinephrine free is used because we want to increase the blood flow to the surgical area to heal and treat cavitational lesions. By that, biological dentist wants to lower the formation of toxic byproducts and reverse ischemic disease.
Infection and lowered immune system (Bugs): Besides bacteria and infections from necrosis, systemic co-infections can be formed in the bacteria rich environment. In other words, viruses, fungi, and parasites observed during biopsies and it happens because of the low immune system. They can produce neurotoxic and combine with heavy metals like mercury and form potent toxins.
Low vitamin levels, ineffective immune systems (Lyme disease): Not having a healthy bone, vascularization development, and low defense against inflammations will provide the environment for cavitation’s growth specifically where wisdom teeth grew. Using a Lidocaine with epinephrine in inappropriate ages, and low in vitamin D3 are caused chronic source of infections and diseases. Also, Borrelia virus prefers to live in the cavitation area and it results Lyme disease. Body can’t fight with those viruses because of the limited blood flow.
Cavitation Treatment, Ozone Therapy, and Surgery:
It is important to take vitamin D3, K2, and bone strength supplementations before the procedure.
2 weeks before the surgery, patient needs to be on anti-inflammatory diet (gluten-free, diary free, grain free, sugar free, meat free, organic, highly alkalizing diet).
All implicated cavitation sites should be clean up by surgery.
Ozone gas injection and ozone irrigation applied during the surgery.
Laser used to sterilize the area, regenerate the bone, promotes healing, and reverse the infection.
The anti-inflammatory diet needs to continue for 2 weeks after the surgery.
We provide total dentistry and sleep/airway wellness, complete prevention plans, craniofacial analysis, cancer and disease screening and treatment, laser bacteria and virus elimination, implants, gum recession treatment and more.
