Minimally invasive treatment of dental caries is an approach that uses conservative management strategies focusing on maximum preservation of tooth structure. Unlike the principles enumerated by GV Black, which advocated maximal excavation of carious tooth structure, Minimal Invasive Dentistry (MID) conserves as much tooth structure as possible and provides a conducive environment for the affected tooth tissue to self-heal. This chapter enumerates the various modalities of Minimal Intervention Dentistry or Minimally Invasive Dentistry (MID) and discusses Atraumatic Restorative treatment (ART) in detail. 

Keywords: ART, Air Abrasion, Chemomechanical Caries Removal, MID, Microdentisry, Ozone Therapy.
