Covid-19: Safety Considerations During Dental Surgery
Journal of Oral Health Case Report is pleased to announce Special issue on “Covid-19: Safety Considerations During Dental Surgery”.
Dental care settings invariably carry the risk of 2019-nCoV infection due to the specificity of its procedures, which involves face-to-face communication with patients, and frequent exposure to saliva, blood, and other body fluids, and the handling of sharp instruments. The pathogenic microorganisms can be transmitted in dental settings through inhalation of airborne microorganisms that can remain suspended in the air for long periods, direct contact with blood, oral fluids, or other patient materials, contact of conjunctival, nasal, or oral mucosa with droplets and aerosols containing microorganisms generated from an infected individual and propelled a short distance by coughing and talking without a mask, and indirect contact with contaminated instruments and/or environmental surfaces.
The widespread use of recommended barrier precautions (such as masks, gloves, gowns, and eye wear) in the care of all patients with respiratory symptoms must be of highest priority. In emergency departments, outpatient offices, homes, and other settings, there will be undiagnosed but infected patients, many with clinically mild cases or atypical presentations. There is limited availability of N95 masks, respiratory isolation rooms, and PAPR, particularly in outpatient offices, to feasibly evaluate every patient with respiratory illness and such measures are not routinely necessary.
With the same purpose our Journal “Journal of Oral Health Case Report ” is announcing Special issue Call for paper on “Covid-19: Safety Considerations During Dental Surgery”. We welcome both solicited and unsolicited submissions that will contribute to this special issue.
All accepted manuscripts can be submitted online via https://www.scholarscentral.org/submissions/oral-health-case-reports.html or through an email id to [email protected]
