TREATMENT OF FASCIAL SPACE ABSCESS IN THE OROMAXILLOFACIAL REGION WITH INTRACANAL DRAINAGE
 
Abstract
The definition of fascial spaces are latent spaces between fascial planes. If infections which spread from dental origin to soft tissue are mild, they are restricted by fascial planes. But, when infections are severe, fascial spaces are often used as a natural pathway which spread to the deep cervical region. If they are not treated at early stage, they may result in the fatal complications as followings; airway obstruction, septicemia, cerebral abscess, and thrombophlebitis etc. The early treatment of fascial space abscess is very important for young children. These case reports present the successful result of fascial space abscess treatment through intracanal drainage without surgical excision. It is proven that the treatment through intracanal drainage has some benefits to the surgical excision, which are as follows: 1) It is economic to the patients or their parents avoiding admission. 2) The treatment procedure is more simple. 3) Childrens can avoid the fearful environment.
Key Words: Abscess, Fascial space, Intracanal drainage
