The success of periodontal therapy depends on proper diagnosis and treatment. The treatment outcomes are mainly influenced by clinician skills and knowledge. Minimally invasive dentistry has become popular in almost all the specialities.The aim of minimally invasive periodontal therapy is to developed an approach which will allow less manipulation of surrounding tissues than conventional procedures, while accomplishing the same objectives. This approach can be applied to non surgical periodontal procedures as well. In the present article various non surgical treatment modalities like use of LASERs and PDT (photodynamic therapy) and surgical periodontal procedures like minimally invasive surgery(MIS), Minimally invasive surgical techniques(MIST), modified MIST (M-MIST) etc are described which will guide the clinicians in performing day to day periodontal procedures like full mouth debridement, mucogingival surgeries, or esthetic management, in a minimally invasive manner.

Keywords : minimally invasive, papilla preservation, lasers, non surgical.
