Dr. Judson Wall, a dentist a Dental Solutions Inc., based in Bountiful, Utah, has noted an increase in patients’ interest on what is a cavitation and believes this is due to the documentary film, “Root Cause,” that was shown on Netflix and Amazon. The said documentary film is controversial because of the allegations about the possible negative effects of a badly performed root canal on the body.
Dr. Wall says, “Over the past few months, we've experienced a sudden surge in web traffic and patient inquiries. It's been quite amazing really. This stuff wasn't on the average person's radar until word got out because of the documentary. We're really excited that so many people are now waking up to what's going on with their health.”
According to Dr. Judson Wall, a dental cavitation is a hole inside the bone, oftentimes where a tooth has been extracted and the bone had failed to heal or be filled in properly. Usually, when a tooth has been pulled out, the surrounding periodontal membrane is left inside the bone. This results in partial healing so that a spongy area or a hole is created inside the jaw bone. Experts believe that the incomplete healing is due to the bone cells detecting the presence of a periodontal membrane and interprets this as a sign that the tooth is still there.
Dr. Wall explains that cavitation can actually occur in any bone in the body. And there are other causes of cavitations aside from tooth extraction. These include poor circulation to the are, localized traumas, the use of steroids, clotting disorders, and the use of dental anesthetics that contain epinephrine. The periodontal membrane that is left behind after a tooth extraction may produce an image that looks like the shadow of a tooth when an X-ray is taken. Oftentimes, this indicates the presence of a cavitation. And while most dentists know about this phantom tooth image, many do not realize that it can cause certain problems.
Dr. Wall explains further that what causes the problems is the presence of anaerobic bacteria inside the cavitation. As a result, the cavitation becomes a breeding ground for bacteria and the toxins they produce. These waste products from bacteria have been found to be extremely potent in causing chronic fatigue, digestion problems, feeling of malaise, and other chronic health issues. A cavitation can also cause blockages in the energy meridians of the body and can have a far-reaching effect on the overall system. Research has also shown that cavitations could be reservoirs of large amounts of mercury. The result is that cavitations can cause low level or high level stress on the whole body.
Another problem with cavitations is that they are difficult to diagnose. They are not always readily apparent in dental x-rays. Sometimes they are just very subtle differentiations in the texture pattern of the bone. If the dentist is not specifically searching for cavitations when looking at a dental x-ray, he will likely say that it is just fine. To be able to detect a cavitation, the Cavitat scanner must be used to determine bone quality throughout the mouth, and this is what is used by Dr. Wall.
To ensure that there is indeed a cavitation, a biopsy must be obtained and sent for pathological examination. To treat cavitation, the area is surgically debrided and IV vitamin C is routinely given during the surgical procedure.
Dr. Judson Wall has been offering holistic dental services for more than 15 years. He obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah and got his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the West Virginia University School of Dentistry. He is accredited by the International Academy of Oral Medicine. And he is a fellow at the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain and the Academy of General Dentistry. He is also an associate fellow at the World Clinical Laser Institute.
