Patient-related outcomes are one of the primary concerns in the selection of periodontal surgical procedure. The need of less invasive and patient-friendly surgical procedures has led to invent of the concept of "minimally surgical techniques." These surgeries aim to produce minimal flap reflection, small wounds, and gentle handling of soft tissues. This review summarizes the rationale, indications, contraindications, and technique of various minimally invasive periodontal surgical procedures. Clinical Relevance To Interdisciplinary Dentistry Minimally invasive surgical techniques tend to enhance the outcome of periodontal regenerative procedures. As predictability of various restorative, orthodontic treatments as well as implants depend on successful regenerative therapy, minimally invasive surgery is an important step to achieve this goal.
