Your jawbone can develop cavities just like teeth can. Dentistry and science has known about this condition in the jaw for quite a while and it is now frequently discussed in medical and dental journals. Just like a cavity in your tooth, the jawbone can develop dead, mushy bone that often contains infection. It is a lesion that either occurs naturally or that can develop because of something done during treatment from a doctor or a dentist. Ironically, bisphosphonates, a type of drug prescribed for osteoporosis, can cause these cavities to develop in your jaw while supposedly preventing bone loss elsewhere in the body.
