Jaw Bone Cavitation Dentist Charlotte NC North Carolina Holistic Biological Biocompatible
Jaw bone cavitation:
Osteonecrosis (ischemic bone disease or “cavitation”) are a well established pathology in the medical community. However, this pathology is not discussed in dentistry except by a small minority of dentists. Osteonecrotic lesions occur in the jaw bone as well as other bones in the body. As a dentist in Charlotte NC who is concerned about educating my patients, I feel it is important for my patients to understand all issues concerning their dental health.
The following is from:
Osteonecrosis (Avascular necrosis; Osteonecrosis; Ischemic bone necrosis; AVN; Aseptic necrosis)
Causes, incidence, and risk factors: Osteonecrosis can be caused by disease, or a severe trauma, such as a break or dislocation, that affects the blood supply to the bone. Many times, no trauma or disease is present. This is called "idiopathic osteonecrosis" -- meaning it occurs without any known cause.
The ICD-9 diagnostic medical code for “osteonecrosis of bone” is 733.4.
