  COVID refers to coronavirus disease 2019. This disease, which has been declared a pandemic spreads from one person to another through droplets when an infected person comes in close contact with a healthy person. The mode of spread through contaminated surfaces is still debatable as there is no clear evidence till date. The virus has myriad manifestations which include headache, fever, cough, sore throat, muscle and joint pain, vomiting, diarrhoea and pneumonia. This article is an overview on the effects of COVID-19 on oral health and the impact of good oral health in recovery from COVID.
