Scope of the Report

National Center for Biotechnology Information defines Dental Infections as ‘Dental infections are the infections that originate at the tooth or its supporting structures and can spread to the surrounding tissue.’ Dental infections also affect gums causing gingivitis, which later causes periodontal disease. There are mainly two routes of transmission of infection viz direct or indirect. The direct route of transmission of dental infection involves contact with an infected body fluid such as blood, saliva, or direct contact with the affected lesion. The indirect route of transmission involves contact with the contaminated equipment or instrument. It is also caused by tissue debris during intraoral procedures.
