Abstract

A dental infection or tooth infection is the infection that forms inside the teeth or gums. Bacteria exist in plaque, a by- product of food, saliva, and bacteria in the mouth, which sticks to the teeth and damages them and the gums, if infection continues the enamel is weakened and destroyed, forming a cavity. Pathogens that cause primary infections are Provotella, Fusobacterium, Treponema, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus mutants Candidia albicans. Antibiotics have been used for the treatment of dental infection, but because of increased resistance of bacteria to antibiotics, spices have been used.
