Background: odontogenetic facial cellulitis is a septic process that may be presented in the dental practice, where the patient can even reach to the death. Objective: in this study, the characteristics of odontogenetic facial cellulitis are described in patients older than 15 years who were treated in the dental emergency service at Camilo Torres Polyclinic. Methods: a descriptive, prospective study was conducted in the mentioned service from January 2013 to January 2014. The universe was composed of 99 patients with odontogenetic facial cellulitis. The sample was made up of 75 patients. Results: the female sex was the most frequently affected in the age group between 35-59 years. The patients affected by this disease received treatment after 48 hours; the most affected teeth were molars, the submandibular region, and the root remained the main causal agents. Conclusions: cellulitis behaves similarly to other studies.
