Abstract

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the general dental practice has dwindled worldwide. Many usual activities performed before have been restricted, and dentists face great difficulties coping with their regular work. Such post-COVID-19 situations have leveraged the digitalization era to creep into the dental landscape as a blessing in disguise. Hence, bringing Dentronics into the dental landscape is vital, and it helps reduce the transmission potential of the COVID-19 virus largely. This paper helps grasp knowledge on such devices, and the application of such devices is purposefully promoted. We collated information on digital devices that could be used for general dental settings in the postCOVID-19 era with their advantages and limitations. Furthermore, we highlighted the modes of transmission of the COVID-19 virus to be controlled by such devices in dental settings. A dentist can cut down the time spent on a patient’s dental care with these devices, enhancing productivity. Such improvements then help dentists engage in their routine work even if new virulent viruses emerge in the future.
