Abstract: Background: Odontogenic infection is an infection that originates from the teeth, which can extend to maxillofacial space. Severe odontogenic infections can lead to changes in general circumstances so hospitalization is needed for optimal treatment. Purpopse: The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation of spatial involvement and systemic disease with the length of hospital stay in odontogenic maxillofacial patients. Method: This research is a retrospective study by reviewing medical records of patients with a diagnosis of odontogenic infection that extends to maxillofacial space that is hospitalized in Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung from July 2015 to July 2017. The epidemiological data were processed with the Spearman correlation test to see affected space would affect the patients length of hospitalization. Results: Correlation test results showed that the spatial involvement (p = 0.0072), systemic disease (p=0, 0399) were the risk factors that affected the length of hospitalization. Conclusion: Spatial involvement and systemic disease are influenced the length of hospital stay
