The Possible Link Between Dental Cavitations and Breast Cancer


As you journey through each of the 7 Essentials™,  you will learn about Essential # 5 – Embrace Biological Dentistry. Essential #5 will teach you about the obvious connections between root canals, mercury fillings, periodontal disease and your health. In fact, you may have already met with a biological dentist to have your root canals and mercury fillings addressed. 

What you may not know, however, is that there are also some “hidden culprits” inside your mouth that can lead to serious illness, including cancer, too They are hidden because they often don’t hurt, can’t be seen and don’t always accompany other major sources of infection (although sometimes they do). I am talking about dental cavitations.

I personally discovered cavitations when I was on my healing journey over 10 years ago. I discovered that I had a cavitation in my lefty lower jaw,  sitting on  the meridian that connected to my left breast!  Coincidence you may say? Read on. 

What Are Cavitations?

Cavitation literally means “hole in the bone.” A cavitation in the mouth specifically refers to a hollowed out area in the jawbone that has become infected. Another name for this is “NICO,” or Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much research to date that focuses specifically on NICO. One study published in the journal JADA Middle East, however, found that the condition may affect women over 60 more than any other group.

The beginnings of a dental cavitation usually happens much earlier than the formation of an actual hole. Typically after some kind of dental surgery, bacteria from the original site will leave the area and gather along the jawbone. These pathogens will then burrow a hole into the bone, creating a hollow. If left unchecked, the bacteria can make multiple holes in the jaw, where decaying matter can create ideal places for more bacteria, as well as neuro-toxins and destructive enzymes, to grow.

When enough of this “toxic soup” has gathered in the jaw area, these pathogens will inevitably leak into the bloodstream where the overload may lead to all kinds of chronic conditions, including Breast Cancer.

This picture isn’t pretty and may even be a little scary to address, but it is actually quite common. Stories abound about individuals who have tried everything to get rid of health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, autoimmune conditions, digestive imbalances, migraine headaches– you name it– and nothing has worked. Of course, the connection between Breast Cancer and conditions such as these has been established for some time now.

Once a person takes care of a cavitation, however, their symptoms sometimes “mysteriously” disappear. And of course they do; the person has cleaned up a major source of bacterial toxins that had been affecting their whole body!

What YOU Can Do About Dental Cavitations

Here are 3 things you can do NOW to make sure your oral area is cavitation free:

Cavitations don’t have to be scary if you work with a biological dentist that you can trust.
  • Be aware of jaw pain. Although dental cavitations can exist with no pain whatsoever, a tell-tale sign sometimes can be an achy feeling or other kinds of pain in the jaw area.
  • If you have had oral surgery recently, including the removal of root canals and amalgams, talk with your biological dentist about getting checked for dental cavitations as well (especially if you experience jaw pain). They will typically have in-house ways to check for this that could include thermography, 3D scans, Kinesiology and Bio-energetic assessments. They typically will offer natural treatments such as ozone, Vitamin C IV’s, probiotics and homeopathic remedies. Some cavitations do require dental surgery to clean out the dead and infected tissue in the bone.  
  • In the meantime, take time to care for your mouth. Oil pulling, using key essential oils, brushing and especially flossing daily are simple ways that you can begin to heal and sterilize your oral cavity on a daily basis.
  • Use a Hydro Floss Irrigator every day. This is similar to a Water Pik but it  uses magnetics to affect the water and inhibit the bacteria from adhering to the surface of the teeth. Clinical studies show that the Hydro Floss® oral irrigator is 44% more effective than non-magnetic oral irrigators at reducing plaque and calculus.

Remember that, according to the principles of Chinese medicine, cavitations can also affect meridian flows on the side of the body where they exist, potentially causing weakness and dis-ease in areas of the body that are affected by that particular meridian. Taking care of root canals, periodontal disease and amalgam fillings are an important part of any Healthy Breast protocol. In this same vein, I would consider making sure that you are free of dental cavitations to be just as vital for your overall Healthy Breast journey.

    • Your dentist can fit you with a “flipper”. It is a tooth that looks natural but can be removed to be cleaned.

  • Hi Jenny and Debbie- I had a root canal removed almost a year ago. I did a lot of research prior to removing it. I’m glad I removed it as I know it was very toxic. I went in feeling ok but felt terrible and stuck on the couch for the next 4 days. My face was swollen and I had no energy. I recovered but it was a big deal for me. I don’t think most people get this kind of reaction though. As for replacement- mine was in the front…so I had to give it a lot of thought. I got a partial (which just fits in with a fake tooth) and as far as how it looks, it looks fine (no one notices ;). My holistic dentist did a great job matching color, etc. But it’s not particularly comfortable. This is the least invasive cheapest option. After much thought, I am planning to get an inlay bridge this year. An inlay bridge from what I understand is like a fake tooth with wings. The wings attach to the teeth on either side. They have to shave a little on the back of the healthy teeth but it is supposed to be minimally invasive. Implants are an option as well- but it is more expensive and for me, felt too invasive. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  • Hello Jenny and Debbie,
    When I had my restorations done by my holistic dentist, he removed a root canal in a front tooth which I had received in my younger years. After being sent off for laboratory testing, it proved to be extremely toxic! Since my dentist believes there is no safe material to insert into the bone for an implant, I chose a bridge, which replaced the empty space with a composite tooth. Unfortunately, a bridge requires that the teeth to either side of the empty space must be “sacrificed” to anchor the bridge. Since this was a front tooth, and very delicate as well as very visible, the bridge was the right choice. However, if it is not a front tooth, a partial (which is a composite tooth formed into a mold that “grabs onto” the adjoining teeth) is a fine option (I have one of those, too!).

  • This is very interesting. I had a lot of pain in my gums after a root canal and thought something wasn’t right. I was assured that everything was alright but I still wasn’t sure. Good to hear these findings. Thanks for sharing.

  • What are some home remedies I could reform to both cure and reduce the pain? i have an abscessed tooth that i cannot immediately tend to with a dentist,in the meantime,anyone have a home remedy or two that may help with the pain?its to the point that i cannot taste food or drink,but partly because i take thyroid medicine too.thanks in advance
