Many patients haven’t heard about bone infections or cavitations. Here are answers to some of the common questions related to these conditions.
Q: Why should I consider a tooth infection as the problem driving other health issues, especially since I’ve never heard of this before?
A: Tooth infections release toxins into your bloodstream, so they should be taken very seriously. If you have health issues that aren’t improving despite medication, you should consider working with a dentist who knows how to use a CBCT cone beam to search for bone infections. This type of 3D scan will examine your teeth from a much more in-depth perspective than a normal X-ray. If you do have a bone infection, addressing it with a dentist who can properly perform a cavitation will bring you relief and save you from being constantly dependent on medications.
Q: Can you promise me that getting rid of infections will help resolve other health problems?
A: I’ve seen amazing results from my patients who undergo cavitations. They’re a truly effective way to free your mouth from infections. If you’re still not sure about cavitations, there are other ways to test for infections beyond the cone beam scan. We can also do muscle testing to confirm which tooth is the root cause. Additionally, you could request a thermography report that, which will show disease processes in the body or order a meridian report for further feedback.
Q: What are all the preventative measures they take to ensure no infection after the operation?
A: After oral surgery, we’ll give you a care plan that involves antibiotics, diet changes and other guidelines like no smoking. We may also recommend a Vitamin C IV afterwards to promote healing.
