Our intelligence is what makes us human, and robots are an extension of that quality. Robots play an
important role in providing physical subordinates and even companionship in today’s medical world.
Orthodontics has always endeavored to improve the efficacy and efficiency of its appliances. The use
of robots gives precise outcomes in less time and also reduces the risk of infection. This paper intends
to collect literature from PUBMED, PUBMED central, Google Scholar and Sciencedirect on uses of
robotics in orthodontics. The review enumerates the applications of robots in orthodontic and orthognathic
procedures which can be easily programmed and performed with almost negligible risk of disease
transmission. During the COVID-19 pandemic, robots would prove to be great assistance. The paper
presented can prove to be a boon in the present scenario. The review also makes few recommendations
by which orthodontists can practice better without any risk.
