The rapid outbreak of coronavirus syndrome 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has engulfed the entire international community and triggered serious public health issues. Orthodontists may encounter patients with suspected or confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection and may need to work vigilantly to avoid the spread of infection, consecutively provide care and emergency treatment. The objective of this review is to provide a brief overview of the effects of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 on orthodontic treatment, and to address risk management and the facilitation of orthodontic emergency care and post-pandemic orthodontic practice, using data and literature currently available.
