Medical concerns of, dare I say it, venomoid bites....

I know many people here are opposed to venomoids, but I was curious if there are any medical concerns over a bite from a venomoid. Despite what I have heard/read about the risk of infection from non-venomous snake bites, I have been bitten by many non-venomous snakes and aside from the occasional broken tooth and one punctured vessel in my hand, I have never had any complications or incidents of infection. I suppose this question would be just the same asking about dry bites. Are there greater risks of complications from having an inch long fang bury in your flesh as opposed to the smaller teeth of non-venomous snakes (tree boas excluded )?
