Abstract

This review aim to discuss the important components of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) and possible correlations, interactions with oral/periodontal structures. With the beginning of the announcement of the transformation of COVID-19 from an epidemic into a pandemic, it was necessary to realize the injury of several million people infected with this disease and others will become infected soon and its impact on public health as well as the adverse effect of chronic diseases and their causes for the spread of COVID-19. Chronic periodontal diseases are one of the most widespread diseases around the globe and one of their supposed causes is the presence of many microbial plaques, including bacteria and viruses. Presence of coronavirus receptors on the cells of the oral mucosa, and cells of the periodontal pockets, may give a way to adhere the virus and spread inside the body through the periodontium. SARS-CoV-2 virus was found in some saliva samples. A conceivable relevance between periodontitis and COVID-19 has been hypothesized. Defense against COVID-19 in dental clinical consist of three ascending levels. It is advised to utilize a mouth rinse against SARS-CoV-2. At end of this review, oral health providers and periodontists will gain essential knowledge to the successful confrontation against the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19).
