Abstract

Literature from different parts of the world reported that antibiotic abuse is evident in dental practice. One aspect of this abuse is prescribing antibiotics for non-indicated orofacial infections. The use of some herbal anti-edematous agents has been recommended for reducing post-operative swelling/edema in certain oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures. In this review we describe the possible benefits of using these agents for certain cases of facial cellulitis in order to reduce the number of antibiotic prescriptions for this particular clinical situation.
