Cavitations, also known as osteomyelitis, are infected holes in the jaw that might cause other, more serious medical conditions in other areas of the body. Bacteria, virus, fungi, and other parasites may thrive within these holes, where they release harmful toxic elements that can make the body sick.
Individuals who have undergone tooth extraction and root canal treatment are more vulnerable to cavitations, especially if the procedure has been done in a medically negligent way. A tooth extraction where the dentist failed to thoroughly clean the space from which the tooth was removed, for instance, could cause cavitations, as well as a root canal treatment in which germs and debris were not adequately removed from the insides of the teeth.
