Covid-19 pandemic is a novel disease with gradual emergence of its signs and symptoms. Oral healthcare providers had a setback in their dental practices due to the high rate of infectivity and the risk of contracting the disease through the patients carrying the virus. Once the dental practice resumed to its normalcy the dental surgeons came across a variety of oral manifestations in patients with a history of Covid and post recovery. An attempt is made to recognise the Covid-19 oral manifestations with plausible explanation of the mechanism of development of such oral signs.
