Cavitations are infected, toxic and stagnant areas found within many bones in the body, most commonly the jaws. The most common areas of cavitations are found where teeth have been previously extracted without proper removal of the infected bone and tissue. DNA analysis and toxicity studies of cavitated areas reveal that these lesions are host to a broad range of potent anaerobic bacteria and their toxins. If needed, Dr. Jim D. Nored, Dr. Hale McDaniel or Dr. Annette D. Gemp will treat cavitation in a conservative, but surgical, laser-assisted manner.
Using the latest in laser technology, Crosby Dental Center is able to treat cavitations. Often, people avoid dental treatment due to discomfort and lengthy visits. Laser technology, however, provides a very comfortable alternative and allows patients to leave these fears behind and seek the care they need. During extractions, we use what has been termed the Huggins Protocol. This involves gentle tooth removal followed by removal of the periodontal membrane and irrigation. We then use the laser to sterilize the area and initiate healing. This protocol greatly reduces the chance of ischemic bone disease (cavitations) as well as post-op discomfort.
