Alveolitis - Definition


Definition


Alveolitis is the inflammation of either the pulmonary or dental alveoli (dental alveoli are the hollow portions in the jaw bone, in which the roots of the teeth are implanted). Dental alveolitis arises following a dental extraction. It creates an intense pain, coupled with an unpleasant taste. Pulmonary alveolitis affects the pulmonary alveoli. It may be caused by an infection, an allergy, fibrosis, or exposure to X-rays.
