The health authorities request that before carrying out any type of dental treatment, the risk of suffering or transmitting the coronavirus infection be evaluated.
Through 5 basic questions they can have valuable information to later make decisions:
- Have you had a breathing problem (such as dry cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain, or flu-like headache) in the past 14 days?
- IF NO, have you been in contact with people with these symptoms in the last 14 days?
- Have you frequented crowded places or events in the last 14 days?
- Have you been in contact with an infected person, with confirmation of coronavirus?
- Have you traveled to risky countries/areas in Spain in the last 14 days?
- If you answer “YES” to any of these questions and do not have a fever above 37.3º, consider delaying your dental treatment, except in emergencies, for approximately 14 days.
- In the case of answering “NO” to all questions but presenting a fever above 37.3º, we also ask that you delay dental treatment for 14 days as a precaution.
- When you answer “YES” to any of these questions and develop a fever higher than 37.3º, you should postpone dental treatment and consult your GP immediately.
