The prevalence of fungal infection has skyrocketed in recent years. This is owing to the new corona virus's rapid spread. Mucormycosis is a deep fungal infection that has shown a rise in this worldwide pandemic period. Mucormycosis is a potentially fatal infection. To lower the rate of infection, it is critical to diagnose it as soon as possible and give appropriate treatment. The necessity of early diagnosis, prevention, and management of mucormycosis, as well as the role of the dentist in doing so, are discussed in this review article.
