Every day more people are becoming aware of the health risks involved with mercury amalgam fillings and root canal teeth. Far fewer, however, are yet aware of one more common type of dental focus (an oral situation that contributes to illness elsewhere in the body): cavitations.
“Cavitation” is the generic term used to describe both empty holes in the jaw and lesions in the jawbone that are ischemic (lacking oxygen), necrotic (dead), osteomyelitic (bone infected) and toxic. The latter may form under or near the roots of root canal teeth, cavital (dead) teeth and wisdom teeth, or, most commonly, in old extraction sites.
For, as Drs. Thomas Levy and Hal Huggins put it in the title of a scientific paper, “Routine Dental Extractions Routinely Produce Cavitations.”
Research by Dr. Boyd Haley has shown that all cavitation tissue samples tested contain toxins, which significantly inhibit one or more of five basic body enzymes necessary in the energy production cycle. There are indications that when these toxins combine with chemicals or heavy metals such as mercury, more potent toxins may be formed.
The videos below will give you a good introduction to the problem of cavitations and how to prevent them or treat them when they occur.
