AbstractInfluence of the microbial factor in acute pericoronitis occurrence. Pericoronitis is an inflammatory disease that occurs after the eruption of the lower wisdom teeth and affects the surrounding tissues, with a complex microbial and traumatic etiology, manifested by an erythematous swelling and gum hyperemia in the retromolar area. The main goal was to determine the etiological spectrum of the microorganisms involved in acute pericoronitis and to evaluate the antibiotics, antiinflammatory drugs effect on pericoronitis treatment. The study included 30 patients (18 male, 12 female), aged between 18-45 years (27,8±8,2 years) with acute pericoronitis of the lower wisdom tooth. The study determined the severity of infection related to subjective and objective clinical symptoms (pain, swelling, congestion), the incidence of various streptococci; antibiotics resistance analysis was performed for in order to determine the sensibility and the rate between monomicrobial and polymicrobial cultures. 14 references, 4 figures
