Covid-19 and prevention in Endodontics

Abstract

In the present issue we collected the most interesting and recent themes focused on the macro-topic of prevention and treatment of infections. The editorial choice is focused on the SIE (Italian Society of Endodontics) position statement about asepsis that suggests the main guidelines that should be adopted during the different phases of endodontic treatments, aiming at minimizing the risk of contamination of the root canal system.

The discussed topic is strongly influenced by the event that, dramatically, is affecting our private practice, social as well as relational life. Indeed, in the last months of 2019, the Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV2), better known as COVID-19, had been developed first in China then worldwide. This syndrome, characterized by a high infection and lack of resolved treatments, had been defined as “pandemic” on March 11th, 2020 by World Health Organization (WHO), becoming the second pandemic of this century.
