Protect Your Oral and Systemic Health with Cavitation Treatment

Most patients have never heard of the term dental cavitation, yet it’s a common, often silent complication of tooth extraction and root canal therapy. Studies show that up to 88% of extracted wisdom tooth sites and about 90% of root canal-treated teeth are impacted by cavitations. Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center offers specialized cavitation treatment in Coral Springs, FL, tailored to individual symptoms and needs, with successful outcomes in resolving symptoms and preventing further complications.

What is a Dental Cavitation?

A dental cavitation is a tooth extraction hole or lesion caused by a blockage of blood flow, leading to bone cell death (osteonecrosis). Incomplete healing after tooth extraction or the presence of the periodontal membrane and ligaments can leave a hole or spongy area in the jawbone. Cavitations can also result from standard root canal treatment, where bacterial inflammation can occur at the tip of the root canal-treated tooth, leading to two types of cavitations: neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis (NICO) and sickness-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis (SICO).

Health Repercussions and Cavitation Treatment

Dental and jaw cavitations, harboring bacteria and toxic waste, can contain high levels of mercury commonly found in cavitations and the jawbone of individuals with mercury amalgam fillings. These toxins can have both systemic and localized effects, impacting the blood supply in the jawbone and potentially leading to systemic diseases. At Alpha Dental Practice & Implant Center in Coral Springs, FL, our biological dentist, Dr. Maya Georges Assi, take a whole-body approach to cavitation treatment, aiming to restore oral and overall health through minimally invasive techniques tailored to each patient’s unique needs.

Special homeopathic medications called Sanum remedies are injected into the cavitation site, followed by low-level laser light therapy applied to the area. This cavitation treatment method is often successful in smaller cavitations impacted by poor blood flow or bacterial toxin effects.

Ozone therapy is nearly 100% effective at removing infection-causing bacteria while enhancing the immune system and promoting bone remineralization. In fact, medical ozone gas injected directly into the cavitational site can infiltrate all infected areas, even those far from the primary cavitation.

As a last resort, the area is surgically opened, and the remaining ligament and debris are cleaned out from the bone. Surgery alone has limitations because the cavitational lesion spreads into the surrounding bone via small channels that are far from the original site. Ozone therapy is effective for eliminating residual infection and regenerating bone following cavitation treatment.
