Even though the phenomenon has been in the dental literature for decades, the term “cavitation,” is a fairly new word in the dental vocabulary. It refers to a “hole” in the bone, typically where a tooth has been previously extracted or near the roots of existing root canal teeth. It may be a recent extraction or one performed decades earlier, but often is the result of the extraction site not healing properly.


Inside the Cavitation holes, the bacteria can flourish and produce debilitating toxins. The latest research has proven these toxins to be highly neurotoxic, inhibiting protein and enzyme absorption and therefore disturbing cellular function, and contributing to, or inducing disease. Cavitations can also block the body’s energy meridians exerting a far-reaching impact. The recommended treatment for most Cavitations is Cavitation Surgery.
