Targeting Jawbone Infections
Surgical treatment of focal infections in the jaw from infected root canals and improperly extracted wisdom teeth are one of the key ways we help our patients overcome chronic health issues. These types of infection are extremely difficult to detect. X-rays can miss them and often they’re not visible to the naked eye. Worse, traditional dentistry either ignores or denies these chronic subclinical infections and their impact on overall health. However, through the use of digital imaging and surgical treatment of necrotic cavitational osteonecrosis (NICO), these hidden infections can be detected and treated successfully.
