Current Risks of Dental Visits

To understand the risks of dental visits, lets first understand a bit more about Covid-19:

Facts about Covid-19:

  • COVID-19 aerosolizes in the air immediately following a dental procedure
  • it remains in the air anywhere from 30 minutes to three hours 
  • despite thorough screening by dentists/staff and following infection prevention precautions in dental practices, there is a chance that patients may be infected but asymptomatic and still spreading the virus in waiting rooms or during dental treatment

Dental emergencies:

  • severe dental pain
  • dental infection symptoms (e.g. swelling)
  • dental trauma

Our recommendation:

  • contact your dentist or local endodontist if you’re wondering whether your symptoms constitute a visit
