Abstract Modern advancements in dentistry have provided great ease in the dental practice. Dentophobia is a major concern especially during the time of invasive dental procedures. Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have proven beneficial in changing the patient’s experience as well as in providing a thorough exposure of the clinical application of dentistry to the dental professionals hence improving their skills and quality of education. VR and AR have set their foot in almost every single branch of dentistry, ranging from maxillofacial surgery, implantology, endodontics to pediatric dentistry. AR and VR are the perfect example of amalgamation of the virtual world and the real world. There are three types of VR systems- immersive, semi-immersive and non-immersive. With the AR system a surgeon is able to map the entire surgery along with the necessary modifications to be incorporated during the procedure to increase its efficacy. VR and AR systems are the modern non pharmacological methods used in the behaviour management in pediatric dentistry with significant positive results. These systems are also used in detecting the pulp canals which increases the quality of an RCT. The use of AR and VR has improved the diagnosis leading to the formulation of an effective and upgraded treatment plan. However certain disadvantages like visual fatigue, expenditure and equipment failure cannot be overlooked while utilising these revolutionised systems.
