Odontogenic infection treatment is commonly uncomplicated, but in some circumstances it may develop to life-threatening complications and giving mortality rate at about 10-40 %. Life-threatening odontogenic infection due to spread of the infection further from common facial spaces may affect other vital structures. For instances, airway obstruction, thoracic complications, Descending Necrotizing Mediastinitis (DNM), Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), Sepsis, Lemierres syndrome, Sinus Cavernous Thrombosis, Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (DIC), and Brain Abscess. Odontogenic infection may cause life-threatening complications if not treated precisely and as soon as possible.

In summary, odontogenic infection may cause life-threatening condition because of impairment in ABCD (Airway, Breathing, Circulation, and Disability), which are airway obstruction, breathing problems (thoracic complications, DNM, ARDS), hemodynamic problems (septic shock, thrombosis, DNM, DIC), and increasing of intracranial pressure (brain abscess).
