Dental Emergency

In this period of epidemiological crisis, the consideration of dental urgency should be limited exclusively to


- Major infections

- Severe pain

- Heavy bleeding

- Abscesses and traumas

Before your consultation

It is very important that when your clinic is contacted by a patient requesting an emergency dental appointment, you make sure that the patient has not shown or has symptoms of being infected with COVID-19, so it is essential to ask the following questions:


- Have you had a temperature above 37.3°C in the last 14 days?

- Have you had any breathing problems, such as a cold, dry cough, breathlessness, or other symptoms such as muscle or headache in the last 14 days?

- Have you traveled to dangerous or quarantined areas in the past 14 days?

- Have you been in contact with anyone confirmed with COVID-19?

- Have you been in very close contact with people with severe breathing diseases in the past 14 days?


If the patient answer "yes" to any of the questions, ask him/her to stay home and to request an evaluation by a doctor to treat a possible infection.


Tips for an emergency dental consultation


A basic principle is recommended: to limit as much as possible the emission of aerosols and splashes.


- Wear disposable clothing: gown, cap, shoe cap, gloves, visor. The use of an FFP2 type mask is recommended.

- Wash your hands before and after contact with your patient, as well as before and after handling any dental material.

- Remember that an appropriate hand wash should last at least 20 seconds.

- Prepare the room in advance so that you have the necessary material on hand.

- Clean and desinfect all surfaces of your clinic before and after the emergency consultation.

- Air the clinic for a few minutes after treatment.

- Be very careful when removing EPI to avoid infection.
