The infections of the mouth are characterized for being polimicrobians, endogenous, opportunistic, dynamic and mixed because aerobic and specially anaerobic bacteria take part. Most of these infections are odontogenics, being the most frequent decays, periodontitis, periapical abscess, periodontal abscess, pericoronitis, pulpitis, sinusitis, osteitis and infection of the aponeurotic spaces. Quinolonas displays a high tissue penetration and a good absorption when it is provided after oral doses, but only the compounds developed recently as the Moxifloxacin demonstrates sufficient clinical and microbiological effectiveness. The aim of this article is to present the effectiveness in vitro and in vivo of the Moxifloxacin for the treatment of the infections of dental origin.
