Diagnosis and treatment of dental and cervicofacial infections
Facial and cervical dental infections can be caused by problems of the teeth, or they can arise from other conditions as well. These should be treated as soon as possible with accuracy to avoid severe complications that can cause blood poisoning, endocarditis (inflammation within the heart), and even death.
