A robot has often been though of as a machine that replaces human. These machines have been used in various areas like manufacturing, space exploration, deep sea navigation, nuclear fields/reactors, military etc. In medical field, they have been used as “surgical robotsDQ in various medical specialties to extend and enhance human capabilities. Neuro-surgery, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, urology, general surgery, gynaecology, radiation oncology and many more fields including dentistry are relying on robotics for wide range of uses. Computers are all over the dental practice and growing exponentially in their no. and frequency of usage. Information networking, technological convergence and robotics are increasingly becoming important in the modern day world. Many question arise here: what exactly is the need of information technology and robotics and where in the dentistry they can be used? Which components are necessary for these new fields? What are their limitations and the future scope? An attempt to answer these questions has been done in this article. The authors first describe the teletreatment and then the efforts using robotics and its applications in the dental field.
