Holistic and Biocompatible Solutions for Dental Cavitation Treatment
Wrentham, MA, area patients told they have a “dental cavitation” may not fully understand what this means. Some think it relates to cavities, but this is not the case. Dental cavitation is a condition that can occur during which a hole is left behind in the jawbone following dental extraction. While in most cases, the hole in the bone where the tooth resided heals on its own and fills in, there are situations where this may not occur. These cavitations can be harmful to one’s oral health, as they can become infected or develop toxins that can spread to other areas of the body. Getting a proper diagnosis and finding an effective treatment can reduce the risks of dental cavitations left behind following the permanent extraction of natural teeth.
