Jaw Bone Infection

Regional Chronic Osteitis (RCO) is a hole or inflammation in the jaw bone, an often-infected area in the jaw which developed where permanent teeth were extracted, or root canal teeth are located. Many biological dentists and integrative physicians believe that chronic inflammation in the jaw bone may contribute to chronic infection or illness. 

The jaws and skull are the most vulnerable bones in the body; easily compromised nerves pass through them and they are exposed to a hostile external environment through the teeth which can decay and become impacted, abscessed, or extracted. These may cause holes, infection or inflammation in the jawbone.

Non-surgical Treatment of Jaw Bone Pain & Infection and Regional Chronic Osteitis

We have unique assessment tools to detect and precisely measure necrosis and bone loss of the jawbone, including Regional Chronic Osteitis (RCO), osteomyelitis and periodontal pockets.

These lesion can and do produce debilitating toxins, and are often located in old extraction sites and under or near the roots of root canal teeth, dead teeth and wisdom teeth. The dental inflammations of the bone must be ruled out as a source of either chronic pain or chronic illness.

The biological dentists at NIHA are able to diagnose these lesions as well as provide treatment. It is important to have an assessment from a biological dentist trained in this area to determine the source of pain and condition. We treat people from all over the country and have helped them restore their health.
