SAEZ MORENO, Miguel Ángel; CARRENO ZETA, Astrid Carolina; CASTANO DIAZ, Marta  and  LOPEZ-TORRES HIDALGO, Jesús. Approach to odontogenic infections by the family doctor. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp.82-86. ISSN 2386-8201.

Odontogenic infections are very frequent and account for 10% of all antibiotic prescriptions in Spain. It is important for the family doctor to know their different clinical pictures in order to choose the treatment properly, as well as to emphasize prevention. Hence it is necessary to know the oral microflora and how it behaves. Nowadays we should not ask which antibiotic to give. The question has to be if we need to prescribe antibiotics to deal with the most common odontogenic infections seen in our practice. In addition, we must know the most suitable ones, both for the treatment and for the prophylaxis.

Keywords : Anti-Bacterial Agents; Focal Infection, Dental; Dental Prophylaxis.
