Natural Dentistry offers Dental Cavitation treatments.
At Natural Dentistry in Clearwater, Florida, Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates work with patients to provide exceptional care with a holistic approach. Many dental concerns may present at their practice, and they believe in providing the best biological and biocompatible solutions available to their patient whenever possible. In addition, they focus on conservative treatments that preserve as much of the natural teeth, tissues, and bone. However, some issues might arise that may require additional treatment — a perfect example is dental cavitation.
What are dental cavitations?
Cavitations are best described as a hole left in the bone due to incomplete healing after specific procedures such as dental extractions. Patients who have a permanent tooth removed from the mouth will heal independently in most situations. In some patients, this does not occur, and cavitation can remain in the jawbone long after a tooth has been removed. While this issue may not seem very concerning, it can lead to the trapping of bacteria and the formation of toxins, leaving patients at a higher risk of infection.
How are cavitations treated?
To treat dental cavitation, Dr. Beata Carlson and Associates will first ensure the problem is present by taking x-ray images of the smile to detect how severe the cavitation is, after which she may suggest a few different options. One primary treatment involves cleaning the area of toxic substances, infected bone tissue, bacteria, and cysts — this can be done with laser therapy or ozone therapy. Painful areas of cavitation may require bone grafting to rebuild the bone and eliminate the cavitation. During an evaluation, Dr. Carlson and Associates will determine the best course of action based on the patient’s unique situation. Patients with dental cavitations must choose a treatment that fits their needs and leaves as much natural structure as possible within the smile.
