A cavitation is an infected hole in the jawbone where bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites incubate and release toxic wastes into the bloodstream causing or exacerbating health issues elsewhere in the body. Cavitations are a toxic dump for heavy metals such as mercury and may be a link to chronic health problems. This condition is not in dental school curriculum. And because a hole in the jawbone is difficult to detect on a routine dental x-ray, most cavitations go undiagnosed. Some diagnostic tools can include a unique ultrasound device, CAT scans, MRIs, Cone Beam CT Scan, and applied Kinesiology (Muscle testing).
