Amoxicillin Susceptibility of Oral Streptococci After a 3-Day or a 7-Day Amoxicillin Therapy
Antibiotic resistance is a worldwide problem closely linked to antibiotic consumption. To limit the risk to select resistant bacteria, the rules of prescription are to use high doses and short durations of treatment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the interest to reduce amoxicillin treatment from 7 days to 3 days, in cases of odontogenic infection requiring the extraction of the tooth associated with amoxicillin monotherapy. The 3-day treatment will be compared to the classical 7-day treatment for clinical efficacy (pain, wound healing) and impact on the susceptibility of oral streptococci to amoxicillin.
Amoxicillin treatment starts the day of the inclusion in the study (day 0). Dentists and participants were blinded to treatment assignment for the duration of the study. The infected tooth was extracted 2 days after the beginning of the antibiotic treatment, and the post-operative follow-up was done 1 week after tooth extraction (day 9). An additional follow-up was done one month later (day 30).
Clinical parameters were collected one week after tooth extraction (day 9). Pain was evaluated by its intensity during the days following surgery (using an analog visual scale varying from 0 -no pain- to 10 -very intense pain-), and by the total amount (in mg) of paracetamol ingested. The infectious state was evaluated by local wound healing, regional adenopathy and fever. The wound healing score combined local inflammation and sensitivity, and the presence or absence of a blood clot.
The streptococci resistance was assessed at the patient-level by the proportion of patient with at least one resistant streptococcus, and at the streptococcus-level by the proportion of resistant streptococcus out of the total streptococci flora. Intermediate susceptibility to amoxicillin was defined as a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 0.5-16 mg/L; resistance was defined as an MIC greater than or equal to 16 mg/L.

Amoxicillin-potassium Clavulanate Combination
A fixed-ratio combination of amoxicillin trihydrate (see AMOXICILLIN), an aminopenicillin, and potassium clavulanate (see CLAVULANIC ACID), a beta-lactamase inhibitor, used to treat a broad-spectrum of bacterial infections, especially resistant strains.
Odontogenic Tumor, Squamous
A well-differentiated, benign, hamartomatous proliferation of odontogenic epithelium, probably arising from the rests of Malassez.
Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.
A broad-spectrum semisynthetic antibiotic similar to AMPICILLIN except that its resistance to gastric acid permits higher serum levels with oral administration.
Neoplasms produced from tooth-forming tissues.
This study is a comparison of two techniques for endotracheal intubation (Glidescope versus Macintosh) in patients with odontogenic abscesses.
