  • 1. DR MOHAMMAD AKHEELOMFS PG
  • 2. Infection – Invasion of the body with organismsthat have the potential to cause disease.Chronic – Lasting a long time. Condition of 3 months duration or longer ( USNational centre for health statastics).Reasons for chronicity – Extremely high host resistance. Sub-virulent microorganisms. Less number of microorganisms.
  • 3.  Osteo – boneMyelos – marrowItis - inflammation Inflammation of bone involving the cancellousbone, bone marrow, cortical bone &periosteum.
  • 4.  Noncompliance with health care delivery. Systemic metabolic compromise –-Age-Malnutrition-Immunosuppression-Congenital or acquired pathophysiologicconditions disrupting blood supply Inaccessibility to health care delivery.
  • 5.  Most are from local causes:1. Acute periapical infection2. Pericoronitis3. Acute periodontal lesions4. Trauma-fractures and extraction of teeth5. Acute infection of the maxillary sinus6. Direct extension of furunculosis of the face7. Hematogenous
  • 6. • Staph aureus, Staph albus, Strep pyogenes• Bacteriodes, peptostreptococcus.• Arachnia, Actinomyces, Klebsiella,Eikenella etc• Typhoid,Haemophilus, pneumococci,spirochaetes
  • 7. PulpitisAcute ChronicApical PeriodontitisAcute ChronicPeriapicalAbscessPeriapicalGranulomaPeriapicalCystOsteomyelitisAcute Chronic FocalDiffusePeriostosisCellulitis AbscessBacteraemia Toxaemia Septicemia Dissemination ShockDeathChronicPeriapicalabscess
  • 8. Mostly occurs in the mandible, rarely in the maxilla. Most odontogenic infections are localised by theproduction of a protective pyogenic membrane orsoft tissue abscess wall. If sufficiently virulent, microorganisms may destroythis barrier.ACUTE Acute inflammation sets in :HyperemiaIncreased capillary permeabilityInfiltration of granulocytes
  • 9.  Proteolytic enzymes liberated due bacteria destruction-tissue necrosis & vascular thrombosis Pus accumulates - increased intramedullary pressure -vascular collapse, venous stasis & ischemia. Pus travels through the haversian & nutrient canals &accumulates beneath the periosteum, elevating it fromthe cortex, further reducing the blood supply. Compression of the neurovascular bundle acceleratesthrombosis & ischemia. If pus continues to accumulate, the periosteum ispeneterated & mucosal & cutaneous abscesses &fistulae may develop.
  • 10. CHRONIC As natural host defenses & therapy begin to be effective,it becomes chronic. Inflammation regresses, granulation tissue is formed. Angiogenesis takes place leading to lysis of bone, thusseparating fragments of necrotic bone from viable bone –Sequestra. Small sections of bone may be completely lysed whilelarger ones may be isolated by a bed of granulationtissue & surrounded in a sheath of new bone –Involucrum Occasionlly , the involucrum is peneterated by channelsthrough which pus escapes to an epithelial surface –Cloacae.
  • 11. Radiographic evaluation• 30-60% destruction min 4-8 days to 3 wks• Moth eaten appearance, scattered areas of bonedestruction• Islands of sequestrae in radiolucent areassurrounded by involucrum• Stippled granular densification due tosubperiosteal deposition on surface of trabeculaeat the expense of marrow spaces
  • 12. RADIOGRAPHIC AIDS• Radiographs• Bone imaging - ScintigraphyDetermines presence of reactive boneRadiopharmaceuticals – technetium-99gallium-67indium-111• High resolution Computer tomography• Magnetic Resonance Imaging
  • 13. Classification & staging system for Osteomyelitis (Ciernyet al, 1985)I. AnatomicStage I : Medullary OM, involves medullary boneusually hematogenousStage II: Superficial OM, < 2cm defect withoutcancellous boneStage III: Localized OM, <2 cm defect, does notinvolve both the corticesStage IV: Diffuse OM, > 2cm, infection, non union,pathologic #
  • 14. II. Physiological class Host : normal host HostSystemic compromiseLocal compromise Host : treatment worse than disease

During Radiotherapy – Pt should rinse mouth at least 10 time a daywith saline. Chlorhexidine mouth rinses twice daily tominimize bacterial/ fungal levels withinmouth. Weekly oral hygiene evaluation by dentist. If overgrowth of candida albicans – nystatin orclotrimazole topical application. Monitor mouth opening. Monitor nutritional status.
  • 65. Post Radiotherapy – Dental evaluation every 3 – 4 months. Oral prophylaxis. Topical fluoride application should be done usingcustom trays. Pt to be instructed in daily self administration oftopical fluoride administration. Salivary substitutes should be prescribed. Restore teeth developing post-radiotherapy cariesusing amalgam or composites. Extraction of teeth can be carried out with the use of- Hyperbaric oxygen before & after extraction- Prophylactic antibiotic Evaluate artificial dentures.
