Potential Treatment Steps For Jawbone Cavitation
Cavitation is a medical term for a hole in bone caused by the death of a supplying blood vessel. The hole can weaken neighboring teeth and can potentially cause further damage to surrounding jawbone. Treatment is necessary once the cavitation is found to prevent the problems from spreading. If the cavitation was caused by gingival disease, your dentist will start by clearing up the infection. Sometimes you can have a cavitation, or more than one, for no apparent reason.
