Abstract

This review compares the various methods of Minimally Invasive Treatment approaches with Traditional approaches in Endodontics. The MEDLINE, PubMed databases, bibliographies of all relevant articles and textbooks were searched. As Devan once quoted “Our goal should be perpetual preservation of what remains rather than meticulous restoration of what is missing” which is achieved by the shift of endodontics from extension for prevention to the minimal invasion with the systematic respect of original tissue. Preserving the integrity of tooth by following means mentioned in this article one can achieve minimal invasion with maximum appropriateness. Minimally invasive approach requires in-depth knowledge of Root Canal Anatomy, Diagnosis and Decision Making, Preservation of Structural Integrity of Tooth, Alternate Access Designs, Image Guided Endodontic Access, Dynamically Guided Endodontic Access, Microguided Endodontic Access, Modern Bur Designs, Cleaning and Shaping, 3D Irrigation and Disinfection, Root Strengthening and Magnification aids like Loupes and Surgical Operative Microscope.
