Odontogenic tumors are those lesions which originate from odontogenic epithelium. They remain entrapped, either within the jaws or in adjacent soft tissues. The prevalence of odontogenic tumors in Norway was 2.2-7.1%, which affects predominantly the jaws of female adolescents especially maxilla.
Odontogenic Infections or Lessions are of bacterial or inflammatory origin penetrate primarily into the soft and bony oromaxillofacial tissues to produce submucosal infiltrates and abscesses. Often taking a mild course, these infections may also produce life-threatening complications, depending on a patient's immunocompetence and the site of the inflammatory process. The drugs most frequently recommended are penicillin (PEN), amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (AMC), and clindamycin (CLI)—despite reports of substantial resistance to CLI among oral pathogens.
