How Hidden Infections in Your Mouth Can Impact Whole Body Health

Ischemic bone disease.

Fatty degenerative osteonecrotic jawbone (FDOJ).

Neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis (NICO).

These are just a few of the terms you may hear to describe a condition that many people refer to simply as “cavitations.” These are physical defects in the jaw that form when the lack of a sufficient blood supply creates areas of dead, decaying bone tissue.

“Cavitations” are often found in extraction sites that have not healed properly, as well as around infected root canal teeth and failed dental implants. They’re the ultimate breeding ground for toxins that can lead to unexpected health issues.

One of the leading researchers on cavitational osteonecrosis is dentist and naturopath Dr. Johann Lechner. Head of Munich’s Clinic for Integrative Dentistry, Dr. Lechner has published over two dozen scientific papers on integrative dentistry and 9 German-language books on integrative medicine. He is also the founder of the International College of Maxillo-Mandibular Osteoimmunology and the developer of CaviTAU®, a radiation-free device that measures bone density by ultrasonography.

In this hour-long interview below, Dr. Lechner shares his insights from his research, as well as his broad experience as a long-time integrative, biological dentist:
