Abstract: Background: Conventional methods of caries removal are commonly associated with pain, fear and discomfort. Newer alternatives like chemomechanical caries removal system (CMCR) and smart burs came into existence. CMCR is an excellent method for minimally invasive caries excavation, where gel is a recently developed material that comprised papain based gel whereas Smart Burs are polymer burs with self - limiting capability. Aim: To compare and evaluate the clinical and microbial efficacy of two minimally invasive methods in the removal of infected carious dentin. Methodology: 20 subjects with class 1 carious lesions were selected and equally divided into two groups: CMCR group and Smart Burs group. Caries excavation was performed in accordance with manufacturer's instructions in each group. Efficacy of caries removal was assessed by caries detector dyes and microbial evaluation was done by measuring CFU. Statistical Analysis: Data was analysed by Student - t and Two way ANOVA test. Results: Smart Burs showed higher efficacy in caries removal and also greater reduction in bacterial count.
