Minimally invasive dentistry has developed from the concept of preventing and halting oral disease to preserve oral hard tissues before it requires treatment. In contrast to the concept of ‘extension for prevention’ in the time of G.V. Black when preventive products were not available. Similarly, minimally invasive restorative dentistry has developed since the availability of adhesive systems rather than relying (solely or partially) on preparation form for retention. This has evolved further in other fields of dentistry, with less invasive methods being used in endodontics, orthodontics, oral surgery and tissue regeneration. Esthetics has also grown in importance in daily practice and is an important factor for patients in determining what types of treatment to consider. In restorative dentistry, it is now possible to provide patients with durable, minimally invasive, esthetic direct and indirect restorations that spare tooth structure and meet these needs.
