Most patients with acute osteomyelitis in the head and neck present with mandibular disease. Osteomyelitis is being seen with increasing frequency in patients with chronic diseases such as diabetes and peripheral vascular disease and in patients with poor dental hygiene; it is uncommon in healthy adults.
Mandibular disease may lead to fractures, "floating teeth," gingivitis, or localized soft-tissue swelling.
