minimally invasive dentistry

  • The goal of minimally invasive dentistry is to conserve healthy tooth structure.
  • It focuses on prevention, remineralisation, and minimal dentist intervention.
  • Dentists aim to remove as little tooth structure as possible.
  • It uses materials that are long lasting and support tooth tissue so that repairs are not needed as often.

How minimally invasive dentistry works

Your dentist will assess all your risk factors for tooth decay such as saliva, and bacteria and try to implement ways in which to reduce your risk for tooth decay.

For example, you may be advised to use a daily mouthwash or clean better if there is a high level of bacteria in the mouth.

Minimally invasive dentistry techniques


Fluoride plays a very important role in helping to strengthen weakened tooth structure.

Inlays and Onlays:

Similar to fillings but are made in the laboratory, do not require a lot of tooth tissue removal in comparison to crowns and help to protect weakened teeth.


usually placed in the pits of a tooth surface to act as a barrier against the build up of plaque and sugars to reduce tooth decay.

Bite splints:

Many people grind their teeth at night and this can cause serious damage to teeth. Your dentist may make you a mouth-guard to help protect your teeth from this.
