Most odontogenic infections are polymicrobial. The number of isolated strains ranges from 1 to 10 with an average number of approximately 4 isolates per infection. The majority of these infections can be resolved satisfactorily through primary dental care. When antibacterial chemotherapy is indicated, the drug of choice should be either the most effective drug against infective pathogens or the least toxic alternative among several available agents.
