Abstract

Abstract Acute pericoronitis is a common oral infection characterised by a predominance of anaerobic micro-organisms such as peptococci, peptostreptococci, bacteroides and fusobacteria, and also spirochaetes. Penicillins such as amoxycillin, and metronidazole are effective antimicrobials in the treatment of acute pericoronitis. This study presents the views of a group of British Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as to the causative microbial agents and the antimicrobial management of acute pericoronitis.
