Abstract

Dental infections are a common presentation in the emergency department (ED). To help guide clinical management for these infections, the radiologist must be familiar with the anatomy of the oral cavity and neighboring structures, the range of appearance of dental infections, and the routes along which they may spread. Computed tomography (CT) is often performed when severe dental infections are suspected. This pictorial essay reviews the anatomy pertinent to the imaging evaluation of dental infections and depicts a spectrum of pathology that may be encountered, ranging from simple dentoalveolar infections to complex multispatial infections.
