Oral Health & Dental Care: The Era of the New Norm, COVID-19 & Pre-Treatment use of Mouthrinse


Authors: Dent-O-Care Professional Education

Abstract: COVID-19 is a global pandemic and has challenged lives in every corner of the world and the health services have been pushed to extraordinary levels. With personal protective equipment supplies being challenged, an overload of unknowns and a ‘new norm’ looming, there is an urgent need to consider different ways of working and dentistry is not excluded. There is a current need to get the dental industry back to work, but with the burden of risk associated with some of the procedures .i.e. aerosol generating procedures, a safe and responsible return is important and additional measures such as pre-rinsing with a mouthrinse has the potential to help to reduce the viral load in the mouth.

Question: Is introducing pre-procedural mouth rinsing in the dental setting as an adjunct to recognised infection prevention and control measures pertinent to a risk reduction? 

Key Words: COVID-19, Mouthrinse, virus, viricidal, risk
