Abstract

Biosafety is of great importance in all areas of health care, including endodontic procedures, since they represent a high risk of biological transmission of diseases such as AIDS and hepatitis, among others. The aim of the study was to interpret biosafety in endodontics by means of a literature review using PRISMA 2020 methodology. It was an observational, retrospective and descriptive study corresponding to the exploratory level, following the guidelines of the PRISMA 2020 methodology, combining the terms 'biosafety' and 'endodontics' in the PubMed and Google Scholar databases. The results highlighted the importance of biosafety in endodontic procedures and it was found that endodontics is used to treat different types of endodontic infections with high bacterial loads, so the correct use of biosafety barriers and protocols is necessary, since the area of dentistry has a high risk of biological contagion. It was also shown that biosafety comprises a set of rules, precautions and guidelines used in various scientific research and teaching activities to prevent risks or infections associated with exposure to agents that may be infectious or present significant biological, chemical or physical risks. It was concluded that endodontics and its procedures require strict compliance with biosafety protocols to ensure a high success rate and safeguard the health of the professional, the patient and the work team
