Abstract

Since its emergence in December 2019, corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has impacted several
countries, affecting more than 90 thousand patients and making it a global public threat. The routes of
transmission are direct contact, and droplet and possible aerosol transmissions. Due to the unique nature
of dentistry, most dental procedures generate significant amounts of droplets and aerosols, posing potential
risks of infection transmission. Understanding the significance of aerosol transmission and its implications
in dentistry can facilitate the identification and correction of negligence in daily dental practice.
