This article discusses the results of a research study conducted to determine the osteology of the jaws. The osseous trabeculae composing the spongy tissue of the mandibular and maxillary bones were examined. The study concludes that all dead teeth are infected and that the best treatment procedure is the surgical removal of the dead tooth and the surrounding area of infection.
