ABSTRACT
The article focuses on dental foci of infections. It states that research suggests there is a causal relationship between dental infections and systemic infections. It comments on oxygen tension in the cultivation of various forms of streptococci. It suggests that dental infections are metastatic from foci that occur outside the dental area and may be the result of blood-borne infections.
