A young high school student experienced debilitating symptoms of stomach pain, weight loss, inflammation, fatigue and anemia. A young man experienced a persistent cough and repeated upper respiratory infections. A college freshman struggled with fatigue, bloating and dizziness. A practicing nurse suffered from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. A college student struggled with symptoms mirroring an unusual autoimmune disorder. Their symptoms were all quite different, but these individuals shared one thing in common. Each had a hidden cavitation infection in the jaw bone area of the molar or wisdom teeth. One of them had never even had wisdom teeth, but all the others had their wisdom teeth removed either recently or several years earlier. Significantly, they experienced remarkable healing once the infected area of the cavitation was surgically removed by a trained holistic oral surgeon, allowing healing of the jaw bone area.
What are cavitations?
Cavitations are hidden infections in which the bones fail to heal properly, often after surgical removal of wisdom teeth. Cavitations or infections in the jaw bone occur fairly frequently in the area of wisdom teeth removal. Powerful, anaerobic bacteria multiply and cause a significant infection in the jaw bone area. Twenty to 30 different species of bacteria can infect the bony socket of the tooth and jaw bone. This infection can then follow meridian pathways in the body leading to serious disease states. These infections mostly go undiagnosed and untreated because there are usually no clear cut indications leading one to suspect them. Rarely does dental pain exist. Similar to root canal infections, these dental infections are a hidden cause of illness.
Who can diagnose a cavitation?
A biological dentist or specialized holistic physician can diagnose these hidden cavitation infections. Kinesiology muscle testing, bone scans and thermographic imaging can be used to try and pinpoint the source of infection. Holistic practitioners trained in meridian assessment can check meridians and diagnose these ailments. Interestingly, the site of the dental infections on the specific tooth will usually correspond with the symptoms that the individual is experiencing based on traditional Chinese medicine meridian points and pathways in the body. Once the infectious cavitation is removed or repaired the disruptive symptoms often disappear.

Proof of cavitation as cause of illness
When cavitations are surgically opened up and cleaned by a trained holistic dentist or oral surgeon, a sample from the site can be sent to a specialized lab for exam and will come back with identification of the various bacteria located in the infection. Holistic dentists use various methods including laser treatments to try and heal dental cavitations. Most importantly for the patient is that quite frequently disruptive symptoms of illness will disappear.
Often, when least suspected, a hidden dental infection at the site of molar teeth extraction can be a contributing cause of illness. One can develop a cavitation infection even if teeth have not been removed. Preventing unnecessary removal of wisdom teeth is an important route towards protecting health. Removal of hidden infectious dental cavitations can often lead to healing from illness.
