NICO stands for “Neuralgia Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis”. This refers to chronic inflammation.

Cavitations happen primarily after the extraction of wisdom teeth, although it can occur in any edentulous (without teeth) area of your mouth. This may be caused by a poor diet high in sugar, wheat, and cow’s milk products as well as stress and a deficiency in vitamins and nutrients like vitamin D3, zinc, magnesium, and omega 3 fatty acids. Your body cannot build new tissue when it lacks these nutrients.

When the tissue of a NICO is removed, pathologists typically find metals, pesticides, and other environmental toxins, as well as fungi, viruses, and bacteria often present within it.

They are difficult to find because they are difficult to detect on an X-ray. A type of computed tomography (CT) called a Cone Beam Scan may be used to diagnose it, but doctors need specialized training to detect and diagnose it.

Symptoms can be unexplained pain in the area of ​​the tooth extraction that sometimes moves to the next tooth. This is because the trigeminal nerve in the jaw has branches that extend widely in many different directions.
