Cavitation Surgery

Cavitation Surgery helps to repair and heal areas that are literally “cavities” in the jaw called jaw osteonecrosis. Advances in diagnostic capabilities, such as 3D radiography (CBCT) cone beam technology, has identified these abnormalities in areas of the jaw which can be a risk for chronic infection. Cavitations can form after extractions or failing root canals and can harbor bacteria that cause the bone to soften and dissolve. Laser cavitation surgery opens these cavities to clean out diseased bone and allow the area to heal. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) and a number of biologic bone grafting materials may also be recommended to facilitate regeneration of jaw bone.
