This study has done a systematic review of drug therapy and assessment of the occurrence of dental and neurological problems in patients affected by covid-19. There are various reasons that can cause an infection in the tooth. One of the most common causes of tooth infection is root canal treatments you have had in the past. Unfortunately, bacteria grow in this area and can lead to infection. Having an infection in the tooth can be very dangerous. Because it may spread to other parts of the body and cause serious problems. For this reason, it is very important to recognize the symptoms of infection. When a crack or cavity is formed on the tooth, if not treated in time, an infection may occur in the tooth. Because these are the gates that can pave the way for bacteria to enter your teeth. The most common type of disease is accompanied by episodes of severe pain that may be felt in the eyes, ears, lips, nose, forehead, cheeks, teeth or jaws, or anywhere on the face. The similarity of the symptoms of this complication with the symptoms of common dental diseases is a factor in misdiagnosis. This can lead to a series of unnecessary dental treatments that not only won't solve the problem, but may actually make it worse. Some patients undergo dental treatment at least once before the diagnosis of the disease. 1.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the impact of lockdown due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic on the periodontal status of patients with periodontitis in supportive periodontal therapy. METHOD AND MATERIALS: A retrospective analysis of patients affected by periodontitis stage III-IV-grade A, B, and C, who had their supportive periodontal therapy to September 2020, after a period of 6 months from the planned maintenance recall (March 2020) was performed. Clinical parameters full-mouth plaque score (FMPS), full-mouth bleeding score (FMBS), and probing depth (PD) were evaluated. Patients were assigned to three groups: A (nonsmokers); B (< 10 cigarettes/day); and C (> 10 cigarettes/day). Statistical analysis was used to compare intra-group and inter-group differences. RESULTS: In total, 55 subjects with the mean age of 47.7 ± 7.0 years were enrolled. The number of participants in group A and group B decreased, respectively, from 25 (45.5%) to 20 (36.4%) and from 17 (30.9%) to 13 (23.6%). The C group increased from 13 (23.6%) to 22 (40.0%). A statistically significant increase in mean FMPS was recorded in group A (from 22.5 ± 3.5 to 30.0 ± 28.3; P < .0001); group B (from 22.5 ± 12.7 to 42.5 ± 3.5; P < .0001); and group C (from 22.5 ± 25.5 to 42.5 ± 10.6; P < .0001). A statistically significant increase in mean FMBS was recorded in group A (from 15.0 ± 7.1 to 25.0 ± 21.2; P < .0001); group B (from 15.0 ± 0.0 to 37.5 ± 3.5; P < .001); and group C (from 12.5 ± 3.5 to 30.0 ± 7.1; P < .0001). A statistically significant increase in mean PD was recorded in group A (from 4.48 ± 0.5 to 5.25 ± 1.2; P < .001); in group B (from 4.71 ± 0.7 to 5.38 ± 1.31; P < .0001); and group C (from 6.00 ± 0.0 to 7.09 ± 1.1; P < .0001). CONCLUSIONS: Within the limitations of this study the results showed that the pandemic period resulted in an increase in probing depth for the patients in regular SPT, possibly due to increased tobacco consumption.
