[Loss of an eye as a result of an odontogenic infection].

Ned Tijdschr Tandheelkd 2021 Jun;128(6):311-316

A 50-year-old woman presented at the outpatient clinic of the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery with a severe swelling around the left eye 1 week after removal of the second molar in the upper jaw. Despite administration of antibiotics 2 days after the removal of the molar because of periorbital swelling, the inflammation spread to the intraorbital space with eventual loss of the left eye. Timely recognition of the symptoms of (the onset of) an orbital infection after dental treatment and immediate referral to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and/or ophthalmologist for adequate treatment can be vision-saving.

Immunomodulatory streptococci that inhibit CXCL8 secretion and NFκB activation are common members of the oral microbiota.

J Med Microbiol 2021 Mar 18;70(3). Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Division of Oral Biology, School of Dentistry, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK.

Oral tissues are generally homeostatic despite exposure to many potential inflammatory agents including the resident microbiota. This requires the balancing of inflammation by regulatory mechanisms and/or anti-inflammatory commensal bacteria. Thus, the levels of anti-inflammatory commensal bacteria in resident populations may be critical in maintaining this homeostatic balance. Read More

Evaluation of Antimicrobial Efficacy and Permeability of Various Sealing Materials at the Implant-Abutment Interface-A Pilot In Vitro Study.

Materials (Basel) 2021 Jan 14;14(2). Epub 2021 Jan 14.

DDM, Department of Oral Surgery, School of Dental Medicine, University of Zagreb, 10 000 Zagreb, Croatia.

The microenvironment of the oral cavity is altered when an implant, a biocompatible foreign body, is inserted into the mouth. Bacteria settle in the tissues in and around the implant due to the passage of microorganisms through the microgap at the connection of the implant and prosthetic abutment. To prevent colonization of the implant by microorganisms, one idea is to use sealing and antimicrobial materials to decontaminate the implant-abutment interface and close the microgap. Read More
