Much of a minimally invasive future in dentistry does depend on how accurately disease risk assessment can predict future disease, how sensitive our MI diagnostic tools are in order to really catch oral disease at the earliest point in time and how long an MI tooth restoration lasts in comparison to traditional and more invasive approaches. Currently, the best solution is to consult systematic reviews. Systematic reviews are specifically designed to rigorously appraise scientific studies. They include a systematic search of all studies available on a particular topic worldwide. Systematic reviews assess the risk of systematic error in each study (also known as bias) and combine, whenever possible, the results of those with least error for greater precision.
