Periodontal disease is a multifactorial inflammatory disease that occurs due to host bacterial interactions. This leads to destruction of the underlying periodontal structures including the alveolar bone ultimately leading to loss of teeth. Periodontal surgical procedures aim to eradicate this disease by increasing access to the defects and regenerating the periodontium. Conventional periodontal surgery can delay wound healing, increase patient discomfort and may increase postoperative discomfort. Hence minimally invasive procedures came into existence and are being increasingly researched open these days.
