Periodontal diseases are one of the most prevalent oral maladies since ages. It is a disease that causes destruction of the supporting tissues of the teeth and eventual loss of teeth. Different therapies have been searched, explored and applied for the treatment of this disease. Conventional periodontal regenerative procedures involving large periodontal flaps for access are employed to improve short- and long-term clinical outcomes of periodontally compromised teeth. Minimally invasive techniques have evolved from magnification devices to advanced surgical instruments and modified procedures. They are characterized with minimized incisions and trauma to the soft tissue that prove to be advantageous over the conventional therapy. This article reviews various minimally invasive procedures and highlights the advantages of minimally invasive surgical and non-surgical therapy.
