The term ¿Minimal Invasive¿ (MI) Dentistry can be defined as the management of dental caries with a biological/medical approach, as compared to traditional operative dentistry which is based on surgical and mechanical principles.Minimally Invasive Dentistry (MID) includes different techniques which including chemo mechanical systems, hand instrumentation, laser cavity preparation, and air abrasion. Atraumatic restorative technique (ART) is one of the MID techniques including hand instrumentation. Laser cavity preparation utilizing the hydrokinetic systems is another MID technique, which cuts hard tissues and fissure sealing as well as removes soft caries.The ultimate goal of minimal invasive dentistry is to extend the life of restored teeth with least intervention as possible. When operative care is indicated, it should be aimed at ¿Prevention of Extension rather than ¿Extension for Prevention¿.
