Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by SARS-CoV-2, several published reports in the scientific literature called attention to the oral cavity as the potential route of infection, the implications for dental practice and the use of saliva in the diagnose of the COVID-19.
