Cervical Actinomycosis is the most frequent form of the condition known as “Lumpy Jaw Syndrome”—LJS, a kissing cousin to Ludwig’s Angina. The tenacious biofilms of the oral cavity coating the mucosa, gingivae, gingival crests, gum pocket defects, cracks in teeth, carious defects, root canal teeth and dental implants and their hardware are composed of a panoply of microorganisms [1,2].
