Background: Odontogenic infection is an infection that originates from the teeth, which can extend to maxillofacial space. Severe odontogenic infection can lead to changes in general circumstances so hospitalization is needed for optimal treatment.
Method: This research is a retrospectively study by reviewing medical records of patients with diagnose of odontogenic infections that extend to maxillofacial space in Dr Hasan Sadikin Bandung from January 2017 to December 2019.
Result: The result found that the average number of patients with maxillofacial infection was mostly in the adult age group and more men (57%) than women (43%). Based on the teeth involved, it was found that the infection was mostly caused by the right lower teeth region (48%). Based on the length of the complaint until the first examination, mostly for 3-7 days (53%)
Conclusion: The incidence of odontogenic infections is still high although there has been a decline in the last 3 years. Public awareness to check their dental and mouth health at RSHS was very low so more patients come to RSHS after the complaints are more severe.
