span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: 14px" class="Apple-style-span"Disinfection and decontamination including sterilization of devices take a lot of time. For the sake of convenience and hygiene, there are many non-sterile and sterile single-use-disposable supplies available for safe provision of dental care. Some reusable devices cannot be adequately cleaned and therefore sterility may not be assured, therefore, single-use-disposable devices play an important role in replacing such reusable devices. Single-use-disposable devices are commonly used in dentistry as they are easy to use and can be discarded after one use. All devices/instruments/supplies that enter the oral cavity should be sterile reusable items or sterile or non-sterilie single-use-disposable items. In this paper we address comprehensively the rationale for use of such devices and also the pragmatic use of such devices in dentistry./span
